OHP Expands Label on Fungicide to Include Veggies, Herbs

OHP, Inc. has announced a label expansion for its fungicide Segway O that allows the product to be used for control of pythium, phythophthora and downy mildew on certain greenhouse-grown vegetables and herbs transplants.

“We wanted to give users more flexibility with Segway O because of the success of the product on non-food ornamentals in the greenhouse and nursery,” says Dan Stahl, OHP vice president and general manager. “It’s a very timely label addition with the exponential growth in the greenhouse-grown vegetable and herb segments.” the active ingredient cyazofamid, Segway O is an alternative to commonly-used fungicides where widespread resistance to the water mold diseases has developed, notes Carlos Bográn, OHP manager technical services. 

“As the only product from MOA 21, Segway O is an excellent choice for resistant strains of pythium and phythophtora on ornamentals and now greenhouse-grown vegetables and herbs,” says Bográn. Even with effective products like Segway O, growers “should always use products from different chemical classes with different modes of action,” adds Bográn.

Segway O is labeled for use on greenhouse-grown tomatoes, greenhouse-grown bell peppers, and greenhouse-grown herbs such as basil and others in Subgroup A. Segway O carries a 0-day PHI.

The revised Segway O label has new EPA registration numbers that users should note. Package and case size are unchanged.
