AVIV® Advanced Microbial Fungicide

Overview

AVIV is offered as a suspension concentrate (SC) produced using a patent-protected process that results in a very efficient formulation, using about 40% less product than leading competitors. AVIV’s biological nature makes it the ideal complement to both organic and conventional production programs. With no MRL and short preharvest and restricted entry intervals, AVIV can easily be integrated into production programs to improve yields and disease control results.

Powerful Strain

The active ingredient in AVIV is a powerful strain of Bacillus subtilis IAB/ BS03. The strain in AVIV is especially prolific, meaning far smaller amounts of AVIV’s AI are needed per acre than similar microbial fungicides. The unique manufacturing process of AVIV results in an endospore that is resistant to unfavorable environmental conditions such as drought, salinity, extreme pH, radiation, and solvents. AVIV can be tank-mixed with a wide variety of other crop protection products, including bactericides like copper.

Advanced Formulation

AVIV uses a patented manufacturing process to optimize the bioavailability of the product’s active ingredient. This advanced process means AVIV solubilizes completely in the spray tank, minimizing the risk of clogged application equipment and eliminating deposit on treated crops. AVIV is colorless and odorless. Most importantly, increased bioavailability of the AI means AVIV use rates are much lower than those of other Bacillus-based fungicides.

Benefits of AVIV

  • Effective against both bacterial and fungal diseases
  • One product to control both soil-borne and foliar diseases 
  • No MRL, exempt from residue tolerance Very low use rate
  • Approved for greenhouse and aerial use
  • Restricted-entry interval (REI) of 4 hours
  • Pre-harvest interval (PHI) of 0 days
  • For use in conventional, sustainable and organic production models 

Label

AVIV is labeled for a wide variety of high value fruit and vegetable crops, including grapes, leafy vegetables, fruiting vegetables, berries and cucurbits.

FERVENT® 475SC Fungicide

FERVENT® 475SC fungicide combines two effective active ingredients to give you an ideal alternative for the control of key almond and grape diseases. FERVENT combines the outstanding preventative disease fighting ability, excellent rainfastness, and translaminar movement of KENJA® fungicide—one of the market’s most recent SDHI fungicides—with the proven curative activity of a leading triazole fungicide, tebuconazole.  

One reason FERVENT provides this excellent disease control is because of its SDHI fungicide component, which is one of the most active in its class of chemistry. Research indicates that this SDHI has molecular flexibility and because of its unique molecular structure, it has one of the lowest potentials for the development of fungicide resistance.   

On grapes, this fungicide combination provides excellent control of Powdery Mildew, along with built-in resistance management through two different fungicide modes of action. The SDHI fungicide component of FERVENT provides additional value through its suppression of Botrytis.

In a disease management program in grapes, the dual modes of action, providing both preventative and curative activity, make FERVENT the right partner to alternate with other Powdery Mildew products, and can fit into any slot in your fungicide program.

Or you can start with FERVENT as the first product in your spray program, and alternate it with other Powdery Mildew fungicides, such as PROLIVO® 300SC fungicide. Best of all, FERVENT delivers excellent control of Powdery Mildew on both vines and fruit.

For almond growers, FERVENT is designed to provide excellent curative and preventative control of the key diseases impacting almonds, including Brown rot blossom blight, Anthracnose, Gray Mold, and Shot hole.  FERVENT provides effective disease control to meet both early and late season needs.

TIMOREX GOLD® Broad Spectrum Natural Fungicide

With its multiple modes of action, TIMOREX GOLD is effective against a broad spectrum of ascomycete and bacterial plant diseases like Powdery Mildew, Early Blight, Botrytis and more, in a wide range of vegetable and fruit crops.

The active ingredient in TIMOREX GOLD is based on more than 100 compounds some of which work synergistically, while others offer diverse modes of action. The result of these compounds is a product with multiple modes of actions that disrupt the fungal cell membrane and destroy the cell walls. This unique MOA resulted in a new FRAC code (46) making it an ideal partner in resistance management.

The active ingredient in TIMOREX GOLD also impacts the plant’s defense processes, reducing the energy required to build its defense response. When a plant is attacked by disease, it activates its immune system, building crystalline structures inside cell walls. When TIMOREX GOLD is used, an attacked plant can divert energy to growth and yield instead of defense processes.

TIMOREX GOLD is labeled for a wide variety of high value fruit and vegetable crops, including grapes, leafy vegetables, fruiting vegetables, berries, vines, tree nuts, tropicals and cucurbits.

 

Benefits of TIMOREX GOLD

  • Multiple modes of action
  • Control of a wide range of plant pathogens, particularly bacterial and ascomycete diseases
  • Resistance management
  • No residues; no MRL
  • Zero toxic load
  • Easily adapted into sustainable and IPM practices
  • USDA Organic Certified
  • Non-persistent in the environment
  • Minimal PPE required

 

Modes of Action

The active ingredient of TIMOREX GOLD is based on the extract of the tea tree plant (Melaluca alternifolia) containing over 100 compounds. Some of these compounds work synergistically; some offer diverse modes of action. Disruption of the fungal cell membrane and destruction of the cell walls result in lower levels of fungal hyphae within the intercellular space of the mesophyll tissue followed by the loss of cytoplasm, which ultimately causes the death of fungal cells.

The complex active ingredient in TIMOREX GOLD:

  • Disrupts cell membranes, causing cell destruction

  • Affects fungal pathogen mitochondria and respiration

  • Appears to interfere with bacterial pathogen virulence by confusing quorum sensing

  • Affects Intrinsic Plant Activity, allowing the plant to focus energy of increased growth and yield

  • Inhibits spore germination in some pathogens and suppresses hyphal growth in other pathogens
