CARMEL, Indiana — SePRO Corporation has introduced Obtego Fungicide and Plant Symbiont. Obtego will serve as a multifunctional tool for growers by protecting the plant from damaging soil-borne pathogens and enhancing root growth and plant health, according to a press release.
As a wide-spectrum fungicide, Obtego is highly effective against diseases such as Pythium spp., Phytophthora spp., Rhizoctonia spp. and more, according to the release. In addition to its fungistatic abilities, Obtego establishes a mutually beneficial symbiosis with the plant and plant roots. The result is a healthy, vigorous, disease-free plant.

“Obtego is a seamless integration into any IPM program,” Brotherton said. “It has a favorable label regarding use sites, application method and a low REI. Extensive testing has shown Obtego to be compatible with most fungicides while demonstrating excellent crop safety.”
