LifeGard™ WG Biological Plant Activator Represents a New Class of FungicideLifeGard® WG Biological Plant Activator Represents a New Class of Fungicide.

LifeGard® WG is the first foliar-applied biological plant activator available on the market. LifeGard 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, 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.
