The superior sclerotinia solution in vegetable crops
Filan® is the trusted industry standard for sclerotinia control in vulnerable transplanted lettuces as well as potatoes, brassica vegetables and green beans. The same powerful SDHI protection – combined with a very attractive price – makes it a product of choice for early blight in potatoes, tomatoes and the other solanaceous crops. It is registered for both botrytis and powdery mildew in table grapes and is still gaining new registrations – most recently for the prevention of neck rot in onions. Filan continues to demonstrate its effectiveness and versatility as part of protectant programs in most vegetable crops as well as table grapes and turf.
Filan® ends fungal growth by preventing energy production, stopping disease in the early stages of development.
When Filan is applied to the leaf most of it remains bound to the leaf surface to provide protection at the point of contact, but a portion of the applied active ingredient is taken up by the leaf and moves through the leaf tissue to the other side of the leaf. That ability to move systemically in plants means Filan is able to protect parts of a treated leaf that were not exposed to the original spray application. The end result is higher levels of disease control, even when spray coverage is less than optimal.
