Marrone Bio Innovations, Inc., a global provider of bio-based pest management and plant health products, introduces Regalia Rx, an advanced, broad-spectrum biofungicide which improves plant health and increases yield potential.
The product is registered for use in corn, soybeans, wheat, rice, and other row crops.
The average yield increase across Regalia Rx in university and farm trials was six bushels more per acre in corn and two bushels more per acre in soybeans compared to the standard fungicide program.
Adding Regalia Rx to the fungicide program earlier in the season gives crops the optimum performance potential and benefit. In corn, studies show one pint of Regalia Rx applied at the V4 and V8 stages of growth boosted yields significantly more than later season applications at V8 and VT.
Growers who have used REGALIA Rx like the results.
The active ingredient in Regalia Rx is derived from a plant extract which triggers the plant’s natural defense systems to help protect against disease, improve plant health, combat fungal and bacterial diseases, and boost yield potential.
Regalia Rx is synergistic with other fungicides. It is the only commercially available fungicide with a FRAC code of P5 so it adds another mode of action to a fungicide program which improves overall disease control and plant health.
Widely recommended as a foliar application (by ground or aerial application), Regalia Rx is also labeled as an effective soil treatment against soil-borne plant diseases. Trials comparing soil and foliar applications are in progress.
