Primed and Ready.
Lifegard® WG triggers your crop's built-in defenses against tomato spot, speck, and a host of other bacterial, viral, and fungal diseases.
LifeGard is applied early, ideally the first spray of your disease management program.
When the BmJ bacterium lands on the plant, induction or “activation” initiates within three hours.
The plant responds with a cascade of metabolites that resist infection and the development of disease.
Once the plant’s natural immune response activates, it remains resistant to disease up to 18 days.
The active ingredient in LifeGard® branded products is a naturally occurring bacterium that triggers an induced resistance (IR) response in plants. This IR response reflects a new direction taken by a pesticide market that has rapidly increased its demand for biopesticides. This is because they offer efficacy, as well as resistance management materials, low residue levels and crop and worker safety. LifeGard is NOP Approved and OMRI® Listed. It is residue exempt, has a 4-hour REI, can be applied the day of harvest.
