Presidio is a targeted chemistry for growers with crops threatened by downy mildews. In vegetables, including potatoes, Presidio also controls late blight (Phytophthora infestans), and root, crown and fruit rots caused by Phytophthora capsici.

Advertisment

Presidio’s chemistry has a novel mode of action and is in a new chemical class – giving growers a new tool to control diseases and ward off resistance issues. Presidio protects crops with preventative control and some curative reach back action to help protect crop quality and grower profits. 

Presidio has no known tank mix limitations with other fungicides or insecticides, allowing growers flexibility in their crop protection programs. Presidio can be soil applied or used as a foliar treatment, depending on the crop. For product stewardship, all applications of Presidio must be tank mixed.

Please read the label carefully, as there are rotational restrictions associated with the use of Presidio. Engage Agro requires applicators to refer to the label for these restrictions and always follow all label directions.
