US: BioSafe announces important OxiDate 2.0 label updates

In their quest to listen to growers and to the market for continuous product improvement such as better application rates for increased grower economics, expanded uses or for new applications for technological advances in the market, BioSafe has announced label updates for OxiDate 2.0 and what these advances mean to you.

Electrostatic sprayer
Electrostatic sprayers are becoming increasingly popular due to their unique coverage capabilities while utilizing less chemicals compared to traditional methods. OxiDate 2.0 is now labeled for use with this equipment.

Treatment of agricultural water used for pesticide spray solutions
The quality of water used in pesticide spray solutions cannot be overlooked or overstated; it can greatly affect pesticide performance (especially at lower rates) as well as mix consistency. OxiDate 2.0 is a way to treat collected surface water used in pesticide spray tanks.

Pre-harvest clean-up sprays for spoilage causing organisms on crops
It won’t be overlooked when your products last longer than your competitors’ by utilizing OxiDate 2.0 as a clean-up step to control spoilage causing organisms. The additional shelf life your product has over theirs might make the difference next time.

Increase in volume up to 400/gallons of spray solution per acre
OxiDate 2.0 can now adapt between high-volume sprays for large canopy crops such as tree fruit and permanent crops. With up to 400 gallons of spray solution per acre, OxiDate 2.0 becomes a highly versatile tool for scenarios where immediate pathogen control is critical.

Stronger “rescue” rate
1:40 rescue rate/3.2 fl.oz per gallon of water; used for: berries (excluding strawberries), bulb vegetables, cereal grains/commodities, citrus crops, cranberries, cucurbit crops, fruiting vegetables, hops, peanuts, pome fruits, roots and tuber vegetables, stone fruits, tree nuts and tropical/subtropical fruits. This rescue treatment rate can also be utilized for dormant clean-up sprays to eradicate overwintering bacterial and fungal pathogens.

**These label updates are valid in all states except California
