LifeGard WG, Bacillus mycoides isolate J, is a preventative biofungicide that induces a natural immune response to limit infection and disease development for a broad range of foliar diseases. LifeGard should be applied preventatively, before disease is observed in the field. Combine with products with curative activity if the disease is present at time of application. Combine or alternate with fungicides having other modes of action for the most effective disease control.
Initial triggering of plant defense response occurs within minutes of application, but 3 – 5 days are required to attain maximum level of protection, which lasts up to 18 days after application. Sprays can be effective for up to 18 days. Diseases controlled: Fire Blight, Early Blight, Late Blight, White Mold, Cercospora, Downy Mildew, Powdery Mildew, Citrus Canker.
4-hour re-entry (REI), 0-day pre-harvest interval (PHI), residue exempt, FRAC Group P6 (low risk of developing resistance).
Application rate: Apply LifeGard at a concentration of 4.5 ounces (or approximately 3/4 cup) per 100 gallons of water. Lower volume (≤ 20 GPA) may be sufficient for uniform coverage of newly emerged or transplanted annual crops, or smaller crops such as leaf lettuce or spinach. Mature annual crops and those with large canopies (including trees) may require higher volumes (≥ 50 GPA) if using ground spray equipment. Do not apply less than 1 ounce or more than 4.5 ounces of LifeGard per acre.
