FoxFarm Bush Doctor Force of Nature Fungicide is designed for effective control of powdery mildew in different crops and flowers. It is formulated from natural essential oils so it is safe to use on edible crops such as tomatoes, melons, squash, grapes, and cucumber. Its non-toxic formula also makes it safe to use around humans and animals. It has shown great performance in controlling powdery mildew on simulated greenhouse and field testing with 1% spray solution for 7 to 10 days. This contact fungicide may be applied as a foliar spray and considered to be an excellent addition to a well-defined disease program for better control and management.
Testing to date indicates that Force of Nature Fungicide may cause injury to some plant species at sensitive stages of plant growth. Open blooms of certain plants can also be damaged. Do not apply to stressed or wilted plants, or to newly transplanted material prior to root establishment.
Force of Nature Fungicide has not been tested on all plant varieties or in all tank mixes. Before applying to a large number of plants, test the product on a small number of plants for potential damage.
We recommend making no more than two consecutive applications of Force of Nature Fungicide. After two applications, rotate to an alternative chemistry for at least two applications.
Apply early in the morning or late afternoon when the temperature is lower.
Spray directly onto disease. Make applications before noticeable foliar damage occurs. Thorough spray coverage is essential for good disease control.
Applications should be repeated at an interval sufficient to maintain control, depending upon plant growth, disease pressure and weather conditions after spraying.
Local conditions may affect the use of Force of Nature Fungicide. Consult your local State Extension Specialist for specific recommendations related to local crop protection problems.
