Presidio Fungicide Registered For Use On Potato

Valent U.S.A. Corporation’s Presidio fungicide has been registered by the EPA for use on potato for pink rot and late blight control.

Presidio is a fast-acting chemistry with a new mode of action that provides growers with both preventive and some curative reach-back action.

Applied to the soil, Presidio quickly moves into the plant’s roots and is transported to leaves via the xylem. Presidio also has excellent translaminar activity, which means better protection for each treated leaf.

For pink rot, Presidio should be applied in furrow at planting for greatest efficacy. A second application can be made at tuber initiation. Presidio is available for use via the following application methods: ground, aerial, foliar, chemigation, and drip application.

Presidio should be applied preventively prior to infection or disease development. This helps to manage infections as well as the development of resistance.

Presidio contains Acylpicolide chemistry and is the sole fungicide in FRAC Group 43.
