For landscape contractors who maintain flowering plants, their jobs just got a bit easier. Hurricane® WP fungicide has been reformulated from a wettable powder in a water soluble bag to a new water dispersible granule formulation known as Hurricane WDG fungicide. Hurricane WDG will replace the Hurricane WP currently on the market.
“The new Hurricane WDG formulation provides ornamental growers with the same broad-spectrum protection, but now it’s easier to mix and measure,” said Scott Lawson, marketing manager for Syngenta. “The new packaging has been tailored to accommodate growers’ diverse application needs, to ensure they receive the best root and stem protection to deliver the highest-quality plants.”
Now available in 8-ounce containers, the fugicide allows growers to easily measure, mix and apply the fungicide to control major stem and root diseases. The new formulation is virtually dustless and quickly dissolves into a solution to save growers time.
This improved formulation, along with the excellent broad-spectrum disease control, will make Hurricane WDG even more popular. Ornamental growers agree that controlling soil-borne diseases is a top priority.
The product delivers protection against the major stem and root diseases affecting ornamentals caused by Pythium, Phytophthora Rhizoctonia Fusarium, Thielaviopsis, Sclerotium and Cylindrocladium spp., according to Nancy Rechcigl, field technical manager. With multiple modes of action, it works effectively through both contact and systemic activity to protect against diseases.
Hurricane WDG also works well in a preventive disease management program and can be used in rotation with other fungicides to complement different modes of action.
