Valent U.S.A. Corporation has received EPA registration for use of Presidio fungicide in drip irrigation on cucurbits and fruiting vegetables. The fungicide is currently registered for foliar use in most states. California registration is expected this fall; New York registration is pending.
This new registered use gives growers the ability to effectively prevent or control downy mildew and Phytophthora blight (caused by P. capsici) even earlier in the season. Using Presidio through drip irrigation provides another method of application that will protect cucurbits and fruiting vegetables.
