Lasting Almond Disease Control
California almond growers are benefiting from lasting almond disease control with help from DuPont™ Fontelis® fungicide. Long-lasting and fast-acting, Fontelis® defends almond trees against bloom-time diseases, providing broad-spectrum control and the flexibility needed for resistance management of key diseases in season-long rotational strategies.
Fontelis® contains a next-generation SDHI fungicide active ingredient, penthiopyrad, which halts progression of key diseases and delivers a broad spectrum of foliar and soil-borne disease control. Key diseases controlled include brown rot blossom blight, anthracnose, botrytis rots (jacket rock/green fruit rot) and shot hole. Fontelis® may be used after the bloom period in rotational strategies for scab*, rust, powdery mildew and Alternaria leaf spot control.
Begin applications prior to disease development and continue on a seven- to 14-day interval. Use a higher application rate and shorter interval when disease pressure is high.
Fontelis® features a single mode of action, giving growers the flexibility to mix or rotate it with other fungicides to improve the quality and reliability of disease control and help manage fungicide resistance.
