For best control of Summer Pathogens, OxiDate 2.0 should be incorporated into a tank mix program with residual fungicides and a nonionic surfactant. Applications are especially needed immediately after a rain event and repeated on a 5 – 10 day rotation for as long as weather is conducive for pathogen development. Specifically, we recommend the following program for the control of summer pathogens such as Botrytis and Powdery Mildew:

OxiDate – 64 – 128 oz. / 100 gal Spray Volume

+ Nonionic surfactant – 6 oz. / 100 gal

+ Residual Fungicides


OxiDate 2.0 kills bacterial and fungal pathogens, offering superior protection for your organic or conventional field and row crops. Use OxiDate 2.0 for curative crop protection applications, or tank mix with other residual fungicides to help provide immediate knockdown control. With OxiDate 2.0, zero days to harvest and zero hour re-entry (4-hour/CA) interval allows growers to spray right up to harvest.
