Bogard, available from Syngenta , is a DMI fungicide for the control of black spot in apples and pears.

Bogard rapidly penetrates the plant tissue to provide local systemic disease control in both a protectant and curative spray programme.

  • Active constituent: 100g/kg difenoconazole
  • Formulation: Water dispersible granule
  • Resistance group: Group C Fungicide

Benefits:

  • Powerful control of Black Spot
  • 5 day kickback
  • All weather protection, 2 hours after application
  • Local systemic activity
  • Suited to Integrated Pest Management programmes
  • A flexible rate giving growers the flexibility to apply the product alone or in mixtures with other protectant fungicides

Mode of action:
Bogard has quick penetration and moves through the leaf to stop early development of the disease and thus provides both curative and protective activity. Bogard belongs to the group of demethylation inhibitor fungicides (DMI’s or Group C Fungicides).

Application timing:

Spur burst to petal fall:

Protective programme

  • Apply Bogard from spur burst
  • Repeat applications at 7 to 10 day intervals until full petal fall
  • After 4 applications, apply BOGARD only as a tank mix with a protectant Scab fungicide

Curative programme

  • After petal fall apply BOGARD only as a tank mix with a protectant Scab fungicide

Petal fall onwards:

Protective programme

  • Apply the tank mixture of Bogard plus a registered protectant Scab fungicide at 14 to 21 day intervals as required depending on weather conditions and disease incidence

Curative programme

  • Apply the tank mixture of Bogard plus a registered protectant Scab fungicide within 5 days of the beginning of an infection period or when the spore warning service indicates that an infection period has occurred
