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.

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.
