September 18, 2017
Total Release delivery system provides ornamental growers with flexible treatment options for disease control
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC, September 18, 2017 – BASF introduces Pageant TR Intrinsic brand fungicide, the newest in its line of Total Release fungicide and insecticide solutions. Pageant TR Intrinsic brand fungicide is designed for the professional ornamental grower who demands a quick and convenient way to apply crop protection on greenhouse ornamentals any time during the production cycle and during transportation.
In addition to use in enclosed greenhouses, Pageant TR Intrinsic brand fungicide has an additional label application for use in the cargo area of trucks. This provides growers with additional disease protection from the time plants leave the greenhouse to the time they arrive at the retail site.
Pageant TR Intrinsic brand fungicide delivers broad-spectrum foliar protection against seven key foliar diseases: Alternaria, Botrytis, Cylindrocladium, Cercospora, Myrothecium, powdery mildew and rust (Uromyces). Total Release solutions are efficient and easy to use. Growers do not have to mix chemicals or operate industrial application equipment with these ready-to-use products.
“Growers have a vested interest in ensuring the finished plants they deliver are healthy and attractive on retail shelves,” said Joe Lara, Senior Product Manager for BASF Ornamentals. “As part of an overall disease management program, Pageant TR [Intrinsic brand fungicide] helps them reach that goal.”
