Scala Fungicide
The All-Weather Fungicide for Tree Nuts

Protection. Weather or Not.

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 almond 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.
