WALNUT CREEK, Calif. -- Peanut growers have a new, more effective
option for disease control this season: Quash(R) fungicide.
Newly available for the peanut market, Quash is a highly effective,
broad spectrum triazole fungicide containing metconazole -- a new active
ingredient for peanuts. The preventive and curative action of Quash
provides effective control of early and late leaf spot, rust and stem
Trials show that Quash results in improved peanut quality, greater
yield and an excellent return on the grower's investment. Additionally,
Quash is highly active at low rates, meaning a great overall value for
the peanut grower.
"In the current industry climate where everyone is trying to do more
with less, Quash offers a significant ROI to peanut growers," said Rick
Kraus, Quash brand manager. "Quash has an excellent fit in peanut
disease control programs."
Quash also offers growers tank-mix and timing flexibility and a
short, 14-day pre-harvest interval. For optimal control of leaf spot and
rust, Quash should be tank-mixed with a non-ionic surfactant. Apply
Quash as a foliar spray with sufficient water to obtain thorough
coverage up to four times per season.
