INTRODUCING REGEV, THE FIRST HYBRID FUNGICIDE THAT UNITES THE DISEASE FIGHTING POWER OF A NATURAL BOTANICAL FUNGICIDE WITH THE STRENGTH & ACTIVITY OF A CONVENTIONAL CHEMISTRY.
REGEV is a combination of Tea Tree Oil (TTO) and difenoconazole, and controls a broad range of plant diseases on arable crops, fruits, and vegetables. Growers can now obtain the excellent disease control activity from multiple modes of action, with only one residue.
With preventative and curative activity, efficacy against a broad spectrum of bacterial and fungal diseases in a wide range of crops, plus the ability to enhance plant growth and yield, REGEV provides significant value to growers. These attributes make REGEV an important new component in potato disease management and control programs.
REGEV allows farmers to reduce synthetic pesticide usage, maintain a strong resistance management program while still obtaining excellent crop disease control against both fungal and bacterial pathogens. Studies have shown that a combination of TTO together with difenoconazole improved the efficacy of difenoconazole and the sensitivity of difenoconazole against fungal isolates which exhibited a lower sensitivity to difenoconazole.
MODES OF ACTION
REGEV works through multiple modes of action for high efficacy against a wide range of fungal and bacterial plant diseases. TTO (FRAC 46) contains a unique combination of terpenes that act on fungal pathogens by disrupting their cell membrane and inhibiting sporulation, spore germination, respiration, ion transport and mycelial growth. Unlike most fungicides, the TTO in REGEV also battles bacterial pathogens, by inhibiting the infection process. Difenoconazole (FRAC 3) reinforces TTO by inhibiting fungal ergosterol biosynthesis, for greater disease control. All these modes of action combine for broad-spectrum control plus preventative and curative activity.
