Certis USA, introduces Carb-O-Nator, a broad spectrum foliar fungicide that works on contact to control powdery mildew, Alternaria, Anthracnose, Botrytis, Septoria leaf spot and other diseases. Carb-O-Nator is registered for use on agricultural crops, terrestrial and ornamental, greenhouse and nursery plants and turf.
Its active ingredient, potassium bicarbonate, has proven efficacy against plant disease coupled with its high level of safety to workers, bees, wildlife and the environment. The Carb-O-Nator formulation contains 85% potassium bicarbonate by weight.
Because it works on contact, Carb-O-Nator is an ideal selection for use in disease resistance management programs. Carb-O-Nator has a reentry interval (REI) of four hours, a zero-day pre-harvest interval and is residue exempt, making it a highly flexible fungicide to use. It is NOP (USDA's National Organics Program) compliant and OMRI listed.
Certis USA recently developed a new proprietary formulation which exhibits superior dispersing and spreading properties that eliminate the need to use a spreader sticker in the mixing tank. Through a combination of osmotic pressure, pH and the activity of carbonate and bicarbonate ions, Carb-O-Nator quickly eradicates foliar diseases.
Carb-O-Nator is registered for use on acorn squash, almond, apple, apricot, cantaloupe, cherry, chicory, melons, cucumber, endive, escarole, grape, honeydew, lettuce, muskmelon, peach, pear, pepper, pistachio, plum, prune, pumpkin, radicchio, rose, spinach, strawberry, summer squash, tomato, walnut, watermelon, winter squash and zucchini.
