OHP Expands Product Lineup with New Fungicide/Bactericide
OHP has added Kalmor fungicide/bactericide to its line of quality biosolutions for ornamental growers.
Available through authorized OHP distributors, Kalmor is an OMRI-listed, copper hydroxide-based fungicide labelled for use on a range of vegetables and herbs grown in greenhouses, shadehouses and nurseries.
Available in a dry flowable formulation, Kalmor is labelled for control of alternaria, bacterial leaf spot, botrytis, cercospora leaf spot, downy mildews, fire blights, needlecasts, pseudomonas leaf spots, xanthomonas leaf spot and other diseases.
“Kalmor is a high-quality formulation with smaller particles than other copper-based products,” says Carlos Bográn, OHP’s manager technical services.
“The smaller the particle, the more copper ions there are in solution which means you need less product to do the same job,” Bográn says. “Less copper is better for the environment as well.”
Kalmor is effective against resistant strains of certain diseases, making it an ideal choice in an IPM program, adds Bográn.
As with any copper-based products, users should check compatibility with other products before tank mixing. Kalmor should not be tank-mixed with OHP’s Areca fungicide or other aluminum-based products.
OHP biosolutions is comprised of products that are specifically designed to address the growing segment of green growers, who focus on non-chemical or softer means of pest control. For more information, visit ohp.com.
