Logo_RegaliaRX_wTag_RGB_470x100

Marrone Bio Innovations, Inc. (MBI), [NASDAQ: MBII], a leading global provider of bio-based pest management and plant health products formally introduces REGALIA® Rx, an advanced, broad-spectrum biofungicide that improves plant health and increases yield potential. The product is registered for use in corn, soybeans, wheat, rice, and other row crops.

Field trials in 2011-2013 and a test market in 2013 conducted in corn and soybeans confirmed that adding just one pint of REGALIA Rx to an existing fungicide program improved overall plant health and yields. Applications of REGALIA Rx to both corn and soybeans produced plants with more extensive root systems, larger, fuller ears of corn, bigger and greener soybean plants and overall better yields. Similar yield response and plant health improvements were demonstrated in rice, wheat and barley trials during the same timeframe. more »

Manage Soilborne Diseases for a Better Start … and a Better Finish

Potato Grower magazineOriginally published in Potato Grower magazine

Before a single plant even emerges, soilborne diseases can negatively impact potato yield and quality. Rhizoctonia solani is particularly troublesome. Once established in a field, R. solani is a persistent source of inoculum from year to year, surviving cold temperatures in the soil, clinging to debris and reproducing on weeds in fallow fields. When the soil begins to warm, fungal mycelium begin attacking the developing tuber. This pathogenic activity has a detrimental effect on tubers before emergence that often extends well into plant development through harvest. The problem can escalate, particularly in the early stages of the disease if developing stolons and tubers are infected through infected seed pieces.

Controlling Soilborne Diseases

California Approves Regalia Fungicide for Soilborne Disease Control for Fruits and Vegetables

California’s rich soils, lengthy growing season, diversity of microclimates and sheer amount of land under production contribute to its agricultural dominance. But just as California’s growing conditions are ideal for fruit and vegetable production, they often provide favorable conditions for diseases that reduce plant vigor and carbohydrate production.

Regalia® Biofungicide
Successful management of diseases has always been a critical part of California fruit and vegetable production. Use of Regalia is rapidly expanding in specialty crop markets;
and because of its multisite activity and complex mode of action, Regalia is often considered as a key component in many fungicide resistance management protocols.
Regalia contains a unique active ingredient that switches on plants’ natural defense mechanisms, causing them to produce and accumulate higher levels of natural proteins and other compounds that inhibit disease development. A minimal REI and a zero-day PHI provide growers with greater operational flexibility and a residue-free harvest.

Better Protection, Better Performance… From the Ground Up

Originally Published by Citrus + Vegetable

Fruit and vegetable growers understand that plant diseases represent major challenges to their bottom line. From the moment a plant takes root, it’s under possible attack from soilborne pathogens such as Fusarium, Pythium, Rhizoctonia and Phytophthora. Soilborne diseases are particularly devastating early in the growing season, when high-value crops such as tomatoes, peppers, strawberries and potatoes are most vulnerable to bacterial and fungal pathogens. Plants affected by disease early in their development struggle throughout the growing season. Yields often suffer. Quality is compromised.
