First choice for alternaria in apples
Over the last few years, alternaria has changed from an occasional nuisance to a constant threat in some apple-growing areas. If your orchard is under alternaria pressure, Pristine® is probably the most consistently effective treatment available – and it is also registered for powdery mildew in apples and black spot (scab) in both apples and pears.
A combination of two well-established active ingredients provides extended residual protection and superior fruit finish, with rapid rainfastness and less risk of russeting.
Pristine® is a combination of a Group 7 and a Group 11 fungicide. Its two modes of action combine to deliver rapid, high-performance disease control.
The pyraclostrobin in Pristine inhibits spore germination, mycelial growth and sporulation of the fungus on the leaf surface. The boscalid component has a translocation mechanism that allows for optimum coverage throughout the leaf. It stops both energy production and synthesis of amino acids and lipids that are critical for fungal growth.
The two active ingredients work at different sites of action to reinforce the dependability of Pristine’s disease control.
