Traditional fungicides kill the disease-producing organism directly, but they do not increase the plant’s disease resistance.
HEADS UP OFFERS ANOTHER APPROACH
Q: How does Heads Up® work? What is the mode of action?
A: Heads Up® is a signaling plant activator.
All plants have natural disease defense abilities: Plants have the ability to stimulate protective chemical pathways inside themselves to fight disease (pathogen) attack. To become effective these natural defense pathways need to be signaled or turned on (elicited). To start the signal to produce these defenses, a plant usually has to experience an attack by the disease. By then disease damage may have already begun. This lowers vigor and plant health, ultimately decreasing the yield.
THE BENEFIT OF HEADS UP
Heads Up as a seed treatment will stimulate a warning signal to the germinating plant. This early warning will start the production of disease defense pathways in the plant before infections can get a start.
Heads Up Seed Treatment will allow the plants to control disease attacks earlier than normal defense call up, thus allowing them to grow to higher yields and better quality. This activation of the natural defenses is a systemic effect protecting all parts of a plant and can often extend throughout the growing season. A further benefit of Heads Up usage is that disease pathogens cannot become resistant to the treatment. The Heads Up treatment is not fighting the disease, instead the treated plant is defending itself. Heads Up is all natural in its composition. It is taken directly from nature.
