Des Moines, Iowa – Greenspire Global has created Procidic, an agricultural bactericide and fungicide that provides effective disease control without synthetics., according to a press release.
“Procidic’s ingredients allow crops to grow the healthy, natural way,” says Steve Knauss, president of Greenspire Global. “What sets Procidic apart is its safe formula; there are no added stressors to crops. It is proven safe on a wide variety of fruit and vegetable crops, ornamentals and cut flowers.”
Procidic is an organic fungicide and bactericide formulated to protect crops during all stages of growth. It works systemically and on contact, according to the release. Procidic is rapidly absorbed into the plant and then moves toward its apex to allow new tissues to be free of infection while reducing the risk of future growth of bacteria and fungi. Use it for management of various diseases including powdery mildew, bud rot, root rot and more. Used in pre- & post-harvest activities, fields treated with Procidic maintain normal in-field dry down times with no re-entry period after the spray settles.
Using Procidic can lessen or eliminate the need for traditional fungicides, according to the release. It is also a valuable tool for rotation on programs for fungicide cross resistance management. In fact, with its low usage rate, Procidic is more cost efficient than most fungicides and bactericides.
Procidic is available in 2.5 gallon jugs. Totes are filled at 250 gallons. It will be distributed by Helena Chemical Company, one of the nation’s leading agricultural and specialty formulators and distributors in the United States.
