Location: Cuasa, Honduras
Lot 201-02 had a high pressure of Powdery Mildew, for which an application was made throughout the lot with Sensei 40 WP (Myclobutanil, curative / preventive) at a dose of 120 grams / 200 liters of water. To compare the preventive versus curative effect, a rotating application of:
After performing the applications with Jaque Mate , the following was found:
The infestation in the commercial control was significantly higher (plants with a greater number of diseased leaves and new diseased tissues)
Two block applications of Jaque Mate after applying a curative fungicide to control Powdery Mildew with a fairly critical level of the disease, helps to reduce, according to the results of this test, up to a 9.6% incidence in 12 days and even more the percentage of infestation.
Jaqye Mate, because it is a botanical fungicide, does not interrupt the harvest to be done daily since its grace period is zero days and maintains a significant reduction in chemical load.
