With two distinct modes of action, Pristine offers excellent disease
control and an effective resistance management alternative against a
broad-spectrum of diseases on an extensive list of registered crops, including
the most recent additions. Pristine is comprised of two active ingredients –
pyraclostrobin is a group 11 fungicide while boscalid is a group 7.

Pristine’s
updated label includes the following diseases and causal agents: Control of
powdery mildew (Erysiphe cichoracearum, Erysiphe polygoni) in greenhouse
bedding plants, suppression of powdery mildew (Erysiphe cichoracearum) in
greenhouse lettuce, apple scab (Venturia inequalis) in crabapple, pear-trellis
rust (Gymnosporangium fuscum) in ornamental pear and gymnosporangium rust
(Gymnosporangium nelsonii) in serviceberry. 

Pristine must be applied preventatively, before disease symptoms
appear. It should also be used as part of an integrated pest management program
in rotation with other disease management products with different modes of
action.
