ProBlad Verde fungicide receives California CDPR approval

Sym-Agro has announced that the California CDPR has approved the expanded crop and disease uses of ProBlad Verde fungicide. As a result of this approval, ProBlad is now registered for use on blueberries and caneberries, for the management of disease.

This label expansion increases the range of California commercial crops including grapes, almonds, strawberries, tomatoes, and stone fruit. ProBlad Verde is an innovative new organic biocontrol that leverages the naturally occurring BLAD polypeptide for a multi-site mode of action that controls fungal and bacterial diseases.

Unlike other biochemical fungicides, ProBlad Verde quickly absorbs into treated plant tissue providing translaminar activity offering both preventative and curative activity towards disease. The result is up to seven days of reach back activity and up to 14 days of disease prevention.

The result is quick, reliable disease control that meets or exceeds established standards. When applied close to harvest this protection helps fruit resist fungal attack during shipping and storage.

ProBlad Verde is FRAC “BM01” fungicide with strong multi-site activity and MRL exempt, helping high value export crop growers meet increasingly stringent standards.

“This expanded registration means that California berry growers will be able to utilize ProBlad to control disease on their crops,” said Peter Bierma, president of Sym-Agro. “ProBlad offers a proven and effective solution that is ideal for the needs of today’s growers.”
