BioSafe Announces Important OxiDate 2.0 Label Updates

BioSafe is always listening to our growers and to the market for continuous product improvement such as better application rates for increased grower economics, expanded uses or for new applications for technological advances in the market, as well as a growing list of pathogens and commodities.  Below are the latest label updates for OxiDate 2.0 and what these advances mean to you.

  1. Electrostatic Sprayer

WHAT THIS MEANS TO YOU:

Electrostatic sprayers are becoming increasingly popular due to their unique coverage capabilities while utilizing less chemicals compared to traditional methods. OxiDate 2.0 is now labeled for use with this equipment.

  1. Treatment of Agricultural Water used for Pesticide Spray Solutions

WHAT THIS MEANS TO YOU:

The quality of water used in pesticide spray solutions cannot be overlooked or overstated; it can greatly affect pesticide performance (especially at lower rates) as well as mix consistency. OxiDate 2.0 is a great way to treat collected surface water used in pesticide spray tanks, so you know the water you’re spraying is solving a problem – not creating one.

  1. Pre-Harvest Clean-up Sprays for Spoilage Causing Organisms on Crops

WHAT THIS MEANS TO YOU:

It won’t be overlooked when your products last longer than your competitors’ by utilizing OxiDate 2.0 as a clean-up step to control spoilage causing organisms. The additional shelf life your product has over theirs might make the difference next time.

OxiDate 2.0 pre-harvest spray is critical for use in field-packed vegetables and fruit to ensure bacteria, molds, yeast and fungi are inhibited prior to packing.

  1. Increase in Volume Up to 400/Gallons of Spray Solution per Acre

WHAT THIS MEANS TO YOU:

OxiDate 2.0 can now adapt between high-volume sprays for large canopy crops such as tree fruit and permanent crops.  With up to 400 gallons of spray solution per acre, OxiDate 2.0 becomes a highly versatile tool for scenarios where immediate pathogen control is critical.

  1. Stronger “Rescue” Rate

1:40 Rescue Rate/3.2 fl.oz per Gallon of water

Used for: berries (excluding strawberries), bulb vegetables, cereal grains/commodities, citrus crops, cranberries, cucurbit crops, fruiting vegetables, hops, peanuts, pome fruits, roots and tuber vegetables, stone fruits, tree nuts and tropical/subtropical fruits.  This rescue treatment rate can also be utilized for dormant clean-up sprays to eradicate overwintering bacterial and fungal pathogens.
