Scala

Protection. Weather or Not.

The All-Weather Fungicide.

Product Information

Scala® SC fungicide is a foliar fungicide that provides high-level preventive control against many economically damaging diseases and helps control many resistant disease strains. With effectiveness in cool, wet, and rainy weather conditions, Scala is an important addition to many spray programs.

Key Benefits

  • Preventive Control – Provides high-level control against diseases, which economically damage crops, resulting in improved crop quality and marketability.
  • Early Season Adaptability – Effective across a broad range of conditions, including wet and rainy weather, making Scala an ideal early season spray. Scala is rainfast as soon as material dries on the plant surface.
  • Tissue Penetration – Provides protection to both sides of the leaf from disease by penetrating through the leaf tissue.
  • Effective Chemistry - Blocks fungal enzymes necessary for the infection process and stops pathogens from acquiring nutrients in plant tissue.
  • Excellent IPM Fit – No adverse impact to beneficial insect species making it an ideal addition to Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programs.

  • Brown Rot
  • Gray Mold
  • Scab

Registered Crops

  • Almond

Product Information

Scala® is a foliar fungicide that provides high-level preventive control against multiple economically damaging diseases in tree nuts including excellent pink bud penetration in almonds to control Brown rot blossom blight.

With effectiveness in cool, wet, and rainy weather conditions, Scala is an important addition to many spray programs such as Luna® brands at bloom.

Key Benefits

  • Early Season Adaptability – Ideal for early season bud and bloom sprays – equally effective at a variety of temperatures.
  • Rapid Tissue Penetration – Rapid penetration and ease of mobility inside the bud and blossom mean that Scala® can quickly reach the site of fungal infection to provide three days of effective reach-back.
  • Pink Bud Penetration – Excellent activity on the key pink bud diseases such as Brown rot blossom blight in almonds.
  • Effective Chemistry – Blocks fungal enzymes necessary for the infection process and stops pathogens from acquiring nutrients in plant tissue.
  • Rainfast – Once the product is dry, it will continue to provide control.
  • Inoculation – No loss of efficacy when applied within 30 hours after inoculation in almonds.
  • Economic – Competes very well economically with other products used at pink bud/early bloom.
  • Crop-safe and Fits in Rotational Programs – Crop-safe (including blossoms) and mixes well with other products. Anilinopyrimidine (AP) chemistry is an effective rotation with Luna Sensation® and Luna Experience® at bloom.

Key Pests

  • Brown rot blossom blight
  • Scab
  • Shot hole

Current Research

Trial on Brown rot blossom blight infected almond spurs and shoots conducted in Durham, CA, showed that a rotation of Scala at pink bud with Luna Sensation at full bloom and Luna Experience at petal fall performed better than corresponding applications of Vangard®, Merivon® and Rovral®.
