Oct 17, 2018

Recently, people have known that pesticides kill bees, and that there is a certain tangle in the use of pesticides. Certis USA has introduced a new fungicide, Carb-O-Nator, the active ingredient of Carb-O-Nator, potassium bicarbonate, which is known to be an effective ingredient for controlling plant diseases and is very safe for users, bees, wildlife and the environment. Because it is a contact killing fungicide, Carb-O-Nator has also become an ideal choice in the resistance management system. Its reentry interval (REI) is 4 hours, its safety interval is 0 days, and it enjoys maximum residue exemption, making it a flexible fungicide. It conforms to the US Department of agriculture's national organic plan (NOP) and is listed on the OMRI list.

Tim Damico, executive vice president of Certis USA North America, said, "We've been looking for effective therapeutic fungicides to be added to our product line, and Carb-O-Nator meets this need. However, we are not fully satisfied with the formula currently available in the U.S. market, so we have developed better formulations to improve the prevention and control of leaf diseases.

Carb-O-Nator contains 85% of potassium bicarbonate (weight), and its content is 4% higher than that of other competitive brands. The remaining 15% are mainly mixed additives developed by Certis. These additives enable the soluble powder to dissolve more quickly in the mixing barrel and have excellent dispersibility and low foaming properties. Through osmotic pressure, pH value, carbonate and bicarbonate ion activity and other physical and chemical characteristics, Carb-O-Nator can quickly remove leaf diseases. Carb-O-Nator is registered for crops, ornamental plants, greenhouse crops, nursery plants and lawns, including acorns, pumpkins, almonds, apples, apricots, melons, cherries, cucumbers, lettuce, grapes, brandmelons, lettuce, honeydew melon, pears, pears, peppers, pistachios, pumpkins, roses, spinach, strawberries and tomatoes.
