RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC – BASF 's Orkestra Intrinsic brand fungicide is now registered for use in the state of California. Orkestra Intrinsic provides fast, long-acting control of foliar and soilborne diseases in nursery and greenhouse operations, according to a press release.
Two modes of action work in concert to control key diseases, including leaf spots, powdery mildew, rust and anthracnose, according to the release. Used mid-production, this new fungicide provides highly effective disease control and plant health benefits, including stronger roots and enhanced plant resilience to stressors like cold, heat, drought and shipping. The result is healthier, more consistent, high-quality plants.
“Orkestra Intrinsic is well suited for nursery operations where growing cycles are typically longer,” said Takisha Truss, marketing manager for BASF turf and ornamentals. “It is rainfast even under the wettest conditions, and with translaminar and systemic activity, it maximizes distribution within treated plants for optimal disease control.”
