US: BASF launches Pylon TR total release insecticide and Trinity TR total release fungicide
Commonly known as aerosol foggers, BASF total release technology is packaged in small canisters. To use, a grower simply places the product in the greenhouse; closes all greenhouse vents, windows and doors; presses the release button, and leaves for a specified amount of time.*
“Growers save time on treatments by utilizing our total release technology,” said Brian Lish, Business Manager, BASF. “These ready-to-use products provide excellent control of plant diseases and insect pests while also reducing water usage, ensuring accurate product distribution, eliminating mixing, and avoiding the maintenance and operating costs of large scale fogging equipment.”
Pylon TR total release insecticide controls mites, thrips and adult fungus gnats and just one 2-ounce canister of this miticide/insecticide treats up to 3,000 square feet.
Trinity TR total release fungicide provides broad-spectrum control of several important plant diseases such as botrytis, cylindrocladium, powdery mildew, rhizoctonia and fusarium. Available in a 3-ounce canister, Trinity TR total release fungicide can treat up to 3,000 square feet of a commercial greenhouse.
On sale now, Pylon TR total release insecticide and Trinity TR total release fungicide are labeled for use in commercial greenhouses on bedding plants, cut flowers, flowering hanging baskets, foliage, potted flowering plants and ornamentals. In addition, Trinity TR total release fungicide is labeled for use on perennials, and Pylon TR total release insecticide is labeled for fruiting vegetables grown in commercial greenhouses.
