Mycorrhizal Applications, LLC (MA), a distributor of Actinovate® biological fungicide in the Horticulture Industry, has announced two new developments for the Actinovate line of products. Effective April 1, 2023, the Actinovate brand of products will be distributed with a two-year shelf life. This doubles the previous shelf life – a key benefit to distributors, retailers, and ultimately end-users who seek a dependable product adapted to various handling and operational situations. This newly extended shelf life makes these practical and effective biological fungicide products even more convenient for retailers and growers. Actinovate will now have one of the longest shelf lives of any product of this type and still requires no refrigeration, special handling, or complicated storage guidelines.
In addition to the extended two-year shelf life, MA is also excited to announce the return of the 2 oz. packaging for Actinovate Lawn & Garden. Back by popular demand, Novozymes has revived the 2 oz. SKU, which was extremely popular for home lawn and garden use, as this packaging size of the powerful Actinovate biological fungicide is ideal for retail settings.
Actinovate is a unique biological fungicide based on the beneficial soil bacterium Streptomyces lydicus WYEC 108 and is used to combat fungal plant pathogens such as damping off, root rot, brown turf patch, gray mold, downy mildew, and powdery mildew. Actinovate SP is available in 18 oz. packages from most major horticulture distributors in the US and is labeled for professional use in greenhouses, nurseries, landscaping, and other applications. Actinovate Lawn & Garden is labeled for home garden and turf use and is available in retail stores and garden centers across the US in the new 2 oz. packaging as well as 18 oz. package sizes. Actinovate AG has a broad and flexible label for use in multiple industries and is available in 5 lb. bags.
"With the change to a two-year shelf life and the re-launch of the 2-oz. Actinovate Lawn and Garden packaging, Actinovate now undoubtedly offers the most practical biological fungicide product line available to growers and retailers," stated Blair Busenbark, Sales and Commercial Marketing Manager at MA. "Actinovate offers a broad spectrum of performance as both a foliar and drench fungicide which can now be stored for up to two years from the date of manufacture under standard warehouse conditions. With this shelf-life improvement and the availability of 2-oz. packaging, Actinovate becomes much more practical as a retail product for garden centers to carry on their shelves, as well as an even more valuable tool for a professional grower's Integrated Pest Management toolbox."
