FMC Corporation, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, has introduced Lucento fungicide, a new tool that provides long-lasting preventive and curative activity for a range of foliar diseases and reduces dependence on strobilurns, for the 2019 growing season.
The Environmental Protection Agency has granted registration for Lucento fungicide in corn, soybeans, peanuts, sugarbeets and wheat.
Lucento fungicide encompasses two separate modes of action (flutriafol, FRAC Group 3, and bixafen, FRAC Group 7) to deliver broad-spectrum disease efficacy, fungicide resistance management, plant mobility and long-lasting residual control. Lucento fungicide is the only proven tank-mix of SDHI bixafen and FMC-patented flutriafol active ingredients, offering novel disease control not previously available to United States row crop growers. Additionally, Lucento fungicide is very active on diseases that have developed resistance to strobilurins, like late leaf spot in peanuts and frogeye leaf spot in soybeans.
Lucento fungicide controls a wide spectrum of diseases in corn, soybeans, peanuts, sugarbeets and wheat, including: gray leaf spot, white mold, leaf spot, frogeye leaf spot, Southern corn rust, septoria brown spot, common corn rust, cercospora leaf blight, Northern corn leaf blight, Southern corn leaf blight and others.
