Growers in California and Florida now have a FMC fungicide available with a new mode of action for disease management in almonds, grapes, strawberries, and tomatoes.
FMC’s Fracture fungicide, now registered for use in California and Florida, is a new broad spectrum, biological fungicide labeled for the prevention and control of powdery mildew, botrytis, and brown rot blossom blight.
The company says Fracture complements synthetic fungicides, expands growers’ options, and can help extend the lifespan of other chemistries.
Fracture should be used as part of a complete spray program for disease control and resistance management.
The fungicide includes a completely new mode of action for disease management, providing decisive, multisite control.
The patented active ingredient coats the fungal cell wall, deforms the chitin structure, and ruptures the cell wall, assuring cell destruction. Within eight hours, the fungal cell is dead.
The active ingredient - Banda de Lupinus albus doce - is a naturally occurring seed storage protein derived from the sweet lupine plant.
With a one-day pre-harvest interval and a four-hour re-entry interval, Fracture can be applied up to five times per season.
The product provides growers with a flexible management tool offering quick, reliable disease control that meets or exceeds established standards.
