Taegro, a broad spectrum biofungicide can now be used to protect your ornamental plants against diseases such as Alternaria (Alternaria brassicaicola), Botrytis (Botrytis cinerea), downy mildew (Plasmopara obducens), powdery mildew and sclerotinia (Sclerotinia sclerotium) with a new EAMU as of September 2022.
Taegro, protects crops by producing metabolites which have disease suppressing qualities, eliciting defensive responses from the plant and competing for space and nutrients on the leaf surface. Taegro offers powerful broad-spectrum protection, enabling growers to save time and money by reducing the number of products required to protect against various diseases.
Taegro has a benign environmental profile, is harmless to beneficial insects and pollinators, offers a low risk of developing resistance and is fit for organic programmes.
Dr. Joshua Burnstone, Fargro Technical Director, says, “We are delighted to add another highly-effective and innovative plant protection tool to the ornamental growers’ toolkit. Taegro will help growers to address the challenges of foliar diseases while optimising yields and improving quality. It’s easy to handle, can be stored at room temperature and can be applied at any growth stage.”
Daniel Lightfoot, Syngenta’s Commercial Head for Europe North West adds “We have a great relationship with Fargro and we are delighted our partnership with them has enabled us to develop the product successfully to support the Ornamentals sector. Fargro’s expert knowledge and experience of how Taegro works will help growers protect crops against foliar diseases will allow them to seamlessly integrate Taegro into their crop protection programme”.
