Reason

Overview

Reason® fungicide provides disease protection in many crops including potatoes, bulb vegetables, brassica leafy vegetables, carrots, cucurbits, spinach, tomato and turnip green. When applied in a foliar application and mixed with a contact fungicide like Dithane DG or Bravo® 500, Reason provides early and late blight protection in potatoes and tomatoes, downy mildew control in many vegetables and cavity spot control for carrots. Its local systemic activity protects new growth and its translaminar movement protects both sides of the leaf.

Reason can also be used as a potato seed-piece treatment when seed-borne late blight is a threat. Applied as is or in a tank-mix with Titan or Titan Emesto, it gives you the highest level of disease and insect protection available from a seed-piece treatment program.

Application Tips

Overview



  • Group 11 fungicide
  • Locally systemic activity to protect new growth
  • Translaminar movement to protect both sides of the leaf
  • Strong anti-sporulant activity
  • Concentrated flowable formulation reduces amount of product to handle
  • An economical way to add the above benefits to your contact spray program in potatoes and tomatoes

Application Tips



  • Rainfast in 1 to 2 hours
  • Begin applications as soon as conditions become favourable for disease development
  • Applications should be made 8-14 days apart for ginseng and 5-10 days apart for all other crops
  • Reason needs to be tank-mixed with a contact spray for foliar applications in tomato and potato crops
  • To limit the possibility of fungicide resistance, Reason (or any other Group 11 fungicide) should be used on alternate applications

Resistance Management

Alternate with fungicides having a different mode of action other than Group 11 every 7 to 10 days after each application of Reason fungicide.
