Research Summary Abstract
The IR-4 Project screens new active ingredients for potential deleterious impacts to aid growers in selection of appropriate disease management tools for their crops. During 2014 and 2015, IR-4 completed 42 trials on 22 ornamental plant species examining phytotoxicity related to foliar applications of Orkestra (fluxapyroxad + pyraclostrobin). In these trials, 4 species or genera exhibited minimal or no injury after foliar applications in a minimum of 3 trials for each crop; these can be added to a list of tolerant plants in the new label for this active ingredient. All trials for sixteen other species or genera exhibited minimal or no injury in the limited number of trials (one or two) for each crop; BASF can consider adding these to the label.
