PHILADELPHIA – Fame fungicides, a family of FRAC 11 group (Strobilurin) products that delivers fast-acting, patented fluoxastrobin protection against major soil and foliar diseases, are now available from FMC. Rainfast in 15 minutes, Fame fungicides can be used on most greenhouse and nursery plants and provide fast foliar and root uptake.
"Proven by university research, Fame fungicides offer fluoxastrobin action, which ensures a high degree of systemic activity to provide very rapid disease protection and stop further growth of established disease," said Naimur Rahman, strategy and fungicide marketing product manager for FMC.
The Fame fungicide family includes:
Fame SC: a suspension concentrate fungicide containing fluoxastrobin that controls major diseases, including anthracnose, downy mildew, powdery mildew, scab and leaf spot. It provides rapid foliar and root uptake with xylem and translaminar movement.
Fame Granular: a spreadable, competitively priced fluoxastrobin fungicide that offers flexible surface application and excellent uptake and movement within the plant, ensuring fast-acting disease protection.
Fame +T: a suspension concentrate combination of fluoxastrobin and tebuconazole that optimizes resistance management with dual modes of action. It protects from both root and shoot diseases, including white mold, black spot, botrytis and rust.
"Because Fame +T delivers two layers of protection, it provides a built-in, optimized resistance management strategy controlling target pathogens," said Rahman.
All Fame fungicides offer quick penetration of leaf surfaces for quick foliar uptake, allowing translaminar movement throughout the plant tissue. At the same time, systemic root activity allows plants to readily take up fluoxastrobin and translocate it throughout the xylem to all plant parts.
