That’s right! As of today, flower growers have 2 new weapons against fungal diseases at their disposal. Heritage MAXX (azoxystrobin) and Medallion (fludioxonil) are now registered for use in outdoor and greenhouse ornamentals.
Heritage (a Group 11 fungicide) is a systemic fungicide, and is appropriate for control of Pythium, Grey mould (aka Botrytis blight) and Rhizoctonia. It can also be used for foliar diseases such as Powdery Mildew, Downy mildew, Rust, Anthracnose and Alternaria Leaf Spots. You can find the new label here: HeritageLABEL2016.
Medallion (a Group 12 fungicide) is a contact fungicide, and is appropriate for control of root rots such as Fusarium, Rhizoctonia, and Black Root Rot (Thielaviopsis) when applied as a drench. It can be applied foliarly for Grey Mould, Anthracnose Leaf Spot and Rhizoctonia Stem Rot. MedallionLABEL2016.
Both are broad-spectrum fungicides that can be used curatively or prophylactically.
As with any chemical control product, make sure to read and follow the label carefully prior to use.
