Fungicides 2017-11-29T13:28:11-07:00


Foliar and soilborne diseases are some of the most perplexing problems in commercial agriculture. Successful control of disease requires a carefully planned management program. Cultural as well as chemical strategies have been the standard line of defense. And while both are important, chemical fungicides can fall short after repeated use. Resistance has always been a concern in modern day intensive commercial agriculture.

Meeting this important need, Marrone Bio Innovations has focused on the development of advanced biofungicides to serve as important additions to disease management programs. They work with a plant’s natural defense system, to help suppress and manage a myriad of disease pathogens.  What’s more, their mode of action significantly minimizes the possibility of resistance.

Using advanced biofungicides from Marrone Bio Innovations, customers benefit from powerful pest control without with reduced concern for resistance and residues.

REGALIA® advanced biofungicides activate a plant’s natural defenses to protect against a variety of fungal and bacterial diseases, resulting in higher quality AND yields. Regalia products are active against both soilborne and foliar pathogens, delay the development of resistance, and help minimize chemical residues. They can be used as stand-alone products or in combination with other fungicides to strengthen integrated pest management programs (IPM) and to help manage resistance in a wide range of organic and conventional crops, as well as in turf and ornamentals.
