Valent’s new chemistry provides control of key diseases, resistance management.

| August 5, 2010

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. – Valent Professional Products announced that Adorn fungicide has been registered for use on ornamentals in California. Adorn is a new chemistry that controls downy mildew, Phytophthora and Pythium in greenhouse, nursery and outdoor landscape settings.

Available for use as a spray or drench, Adorn is effective against a number of diseases affecting California ornamentals, including sudden oak death (SOD) or Phytophthora ramorum. With a new mode of action, Adorn is also an excellent addition to fungicide rotations and plays a key role in resistance management programs when used as part of a tank mix.

Adorn has low-use rates of 1 to 2 ounces per 100 gallons as a drench and 2 to 4 ounces per 100 gallons as a spray. With its translaminar activity, Adorn provides enhanced plant coverage to help ensure growers and LCOs get more from their fungicide.
