Vista, CA               Westbridge Agricultural Products announced today that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has approved the registration of DART® Fungicide EC for the control of a wide range of fruit and vegetable diseases. In 4 years of university trials, the proprietary and patented technology in DART has demonstrated excellent control of diseases such as Powdery Mildew, Downy Mildew, Botryosphaeria, Alternaria (Late Blight), Mummy Berry, Phomopsis, Anthracnose and Apple and Pear Scab.

DART is a broad spectrum contact fungicide that has been OMRI and NOP approved for use in certified organic crop production. DART’s unique formulation is an emulsifiable concentrate that helps to improve crop quality by effectively controlling diseases that can negatively impact crop yield.

DART is exempt from Maximum Residue Limits (MRLs) and there is no Pre-Harvest Interval (PHI), so it can be used throughout the growing season up to day of harvest. DART is an ideal IPM candidate to rotate with other fungicides to combat resistance.

Since 1982, Westbridge has been at the forefront of developing effective plant nutrients, biopesticides and specialty inputs for both organic and conventional farming. Growers have come to rely on Westbridge products to be highly targeted and safe for workers, consumers and the environment.

“The addition of DART Fungicide to our product lineup is very exciting,” says Tina Koenemann, President of Westbridge. “Our goal is to continually provide growers with new and effective products designed to keep up with today’s ever-changing crop production challenges. DART gives growers another effective tool to help manage a number of plant diseases.”

From its TRIGGRR®, Organic BioLink®, Earthtrend® and SUNBurst® nutritional brands to SUPPRESS® Herbicide EC, Botector®, Blossom Protect™ and DART® biopesticides, Westbridge offers growers high quality, sustainable products designed to meet today’s crop production needs.
