Mycorrhizal Applications Extends Actinovate Shelf Life
Mycorrhizal Applications (MA) has made a new development in the packaging technology for Actinovate SP and Actinovate Lawn & Garden 18 oz. Biological Fungicide packages.
Effective Sept. 1, the Actinovate brand horticulture products now provide a one-year shelf life for all 18 oz. packages. This doubles the previous shelf life — a key benefit to distributors, retailers, and ultimately end-users who seek a dependable product adapted to various handling and operational situations.
Actinovate is a unique biological fungicide based on the beneficial soil bacterium Streptomyces lydicus WYEC 108 used to combat fungal plant pathogens such as damping off, root rot, turf brown patch, gray mold, downy mildew, and powdery mildew. Actinovate SP is available from most major horticulture distributors in the U.S. and is labeled for professional use in greenhouse, nursery, landscaping and other applications.
Actinovate Lawn & Garden is labeled for home garden use and is available in retail stores and garden centers across the U.S.
Actinovate SP is distributed by Mycorrhizal Applications and Nufarm, while Actinovate Lawn & Garden is distributed exclusively by Mycorrhizal Applications.
“With its change to a one-year shelf life, Actinovate is one of the most versatile biological fungicides available to growers” said Blair Busenbark, sales and commercial marketing manager at MA. “Actinovate offers a broad spectrum of performance as both a foliar and drench fungicide, which can now be stored under standard warehouse conditions for up to one year from date of manufacture. With this improvement, Actinovate becomes an even more valuable tool for a grower’s Integrated Pest Management toolbox.”
