Systemic fungicide for the control of powdery mildew in grapes, pumpkin and winter squash.


General Instructions

General Information

VIVANDO is a novel fungicide providing protectant activity against powdery mildew. VIVANDO is locally systemic and translaminar so provides some protection to new growth. Best results are obtained from protectant applications prior to the onset of infection. Thorough coverage of the crop is necessary for best results.

Resistance Management

VIVANDO contains a fungicide from the benzophenone group. Resistance to VIVANDO could develop from excessive use. To minimise this risk use strictly in accordance with label instructions. Frequency of application is to be strictly in accordance with the Directions for Use. VIVANDO should be used in a programme that incorporates fungicidal products with alternate modes of action to benzophenones. Use no more than two VIVANDO applications in any one season. Apply VIVANDO in alternation with fungicides with different modes of action e.g. Colliss, triazoles or sulphur.
