Product Overview

A broad-spectrum, preventative biofungicide for the suppression of many greenhouse vegetable, greenhouse ornamental and outdoor ornamental fungal and bacterial related diseases.

Key Features

Based on a naturally occurring patented strain of Bacillus subtilis (strain QST 713), Rhapsody is equipped with a combination of naturally occurring antifungal and antibacterial lipopeptide compounds. These compounds utilize multiple modes of action to destroy pathogens, making Rhapsody an effective resistance management tool.

• Labelled for Soil Drench applications on greenhouse and outdoor ornamentals
• Proven efficacy against BOTH bacterial and fungal pathogens
• Performs on par with copper-based products without phytotoxicity
• Can be sprayed up to and on the day of harvest
• Controls disease using multi-site modes of action for resistance management
• Negligible risk to pollinators and beneficial insects
• Compatible for tank-mixing / rotating with many other registered inputs

Best Practices

• For maximum effectiveness, apply prior to or in the early stages of disease development
• When conditions are conducive to heavy disease pressure, use in a rotational program or in conjunction with other registered fungicides
• Use maximum label rates and shortened spray intervals for conditions conducive to rapid disease development
• Apply in sufficient water volume to give good canopy penetration and coverage of plant parts to be protected
• The use of adjuvants or a spreader/sticker or wetting agent may help to improve canopy penetration and coverage
• Maintain a spray solution pH between 4.5 and 8.5
• Spray solution must be agitated during mixing and application to assure a uniform suspension. Do not allow spray mixture to stand overnight or for prolonged periods
• Rhapsody ASO may leave a noticeable residue on some dark coloured fruits (i.e., green or red peppers). Adequate spray coverage through proper nozzle selection and spray water volume, along with the use of spreader adjuvant may help to minimize this. It is advisable to treat a few plants prior to large-scale treatments, to determine if the residue is acceptable
