Effectively Control Early Blight in Tomatoes

Protect your tomatoes by staying one step ahead of problematic diseases that are impacting your acres. Provide a line of defense against a common disease: early blight. Luna Flex is recommended to be used as part of a full-season program with two to four foliar applications, but the recommended timing is prior to bloom before conditions occur that allow disease to thrive if left untreated. Read More

Two Modes of Action: Why Luna Flex Works

As a Group 7 and Group 3 fungicide, the active ingredients in Luna Flex are fluopyram and difenoconazole, which provide two unique modes of action to help prevent diseases from attacking crops. These two systemic fungicides provide protection and are absorbed by leaves to assist in stopping the development of fungi by interfering with the biosynthesis of sterols in the cell membranes.

Luna Flex is most effective when applied as an early-season preventive.
