Red Force Agricultural Fungicide is an agricultural fungicide used mainly to control the black pod disease (Phytophthora sp.) on cocoa. The product is a multi-purpose, protective, contact fungicide used for effective disease control and protection of field crops, fruits, and vegetables.
Red Force Fungicides are pesticides that prevent, kill, or inhibit the growth of fungi on plants but are not effective against bacteria, nematodes, or viral diseases.
How to use the Red Force Fungicide
- Apply fungicides prior to the development of the disease. Although many fungicides have systemic (“kickback”) action they will not completely eradicate diseases after they have started. By the time a single disease lesion is observed in the field, many more lesions too small to observe are already working at your crop. Most systemic fungicides move less than an inch toward the tip of the plant or may just move from the upper to the lower side of the leaf.
- Use shorter spray intervals during weather conducive to plant disease. Each plant disease has its own “personality” and thus prefers different weather. However, most plant diseases require leaf wetness. Therefore, during periods of rain and heavy dews, more frequent fungicide applications are a good idea. The normal range of spray applications is every 7 to 14 days.
- Apply fungicides before rain if possible.
- The timing of fungicide applications is more important than nozzle type and spray pressure.
- You should avoid wetting after spraying fungicide and in case it should rain you would have to re-apply
