ReLoad fungicide (phosphate) receives EPA registration

Belchim Crop Protection USA’s ReLoad, a unique phosphate fungicide, has received approval for EPA registration, and is now available for state registration across the United States.

ReLoad is a 53.6 percent mono- and di-basic sodium, potassium and ammonium phosphite blend that works best in controlling downy mildew, and also offers an effective and preventative disease control option against pythium blight (pythium aphanidermatum) and anthracnose (colletotrichum cereal). This highly concentrated formula works through a dual mode of action, both preventing oxidative phosphorylation – the metabolic pathway through which cells use enzymes to oxidize nutrients – and stimulating a plant’s natural defense against pathogen attack.

Approved for and proven effective on a wide variety of crops – including, but not limited to, asparagus, curcubits, grapes, hops, leafy vegetables, legume vegetables, tuberous and corm vegetables, ReLoad is a valuable tool in fungus prevention for growers.

“Growers have experienced significant marketable yield improvement when using this product,” said Tom Wood, General Manager of Belchim USA. “We’re very excited to bring this unique formulation and its benefits to the United States.”

Currently, the following states have also approved registration for ReLoad: Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Maine, North Dakota, Nevada, South Carolina, Washington and Wisconsin, with more expected in the near future.

More information, including the official label can be found on the Belchim USA website, http://www.belchimusa.com/.
