Benefits of Headline® fungicide at a lower cost

(ROSEBURG, Oregon – April 11, 2017) — Growers now have a lower-cost alternative to a leading fungicide, at a time when saving money on input costs is top of mind.

New Willowood Pyrac 2EC is a broad-spectrum fungicide that contains pyraclostrobin, the active ingredient in Headline®. Willowood Pyrac 2EC is an effective, broad-spectrum fungicide approved by the Environmental Protection Agency to protect more than 90 crops from more than 50 diseases. Its high quality formulation is value priced to offer growers a new choice for control of tough disease challenges.

The new product is the first post-patent formulation of pyraclostrobin available in the United States. “We’re proud to be able to offer growers these quality generic products that provide them with even more options for protecting their crops and driving their profits,” said Brian Heinze, president and CEO, Willowood USA.

Willowood Pyrac 2EC can be used postemergence to provide fast-acting plant protection and improve overall plant health. It can also be applied in-furrow on corn to control soil-borne diseases and improve root vigor. It can be tank-mixed with liquid fertilizer for ease of application; always test for compatibility.

“Post-patent products contain the same active ingredients as their brand name counterparts, so growers can be assured that Willowood Pyrac 2EC will provide superior disease control,” Heinze added. “Our product lineup allows growers to get the protection they need at a price they can afford.”
