Heads Up®, is not a traditional fungicide, and therefore the product has no fungal/bacterial inhibiting properties.
Instead, Heads Up® utilizes a unique Mode of Action (M.O.A), called Systemic Acquired Resistance, or S.A.R. When applied as a seed treatment, our product activates the plant’s own genetic resistance to diseases by stimulating the plant’s natural defense pathways before disease sets in.
Heads Up® is an EPA-registered, full-season, biological seed treatment against systemic white mold and sudden death syndrome protection, as it is a signaling plant activator.
Heads Up® contains no living organisms, and is compatible with many inoculants, fungicides, and insecticide seed treatments.
Heads Up® can be easily and safely mixed with other fungicides/insecticides or liquid inoculants, or used on its own for seedling and soil borne disease prevention. As a biological seed treatment, it works season-round and within a plant’s given capabilities, saving you money on late-season maintenance and more expensive fungicides.
15+ years of studies have shown Heads Up® is very effective when mixed with other fungicide/insecticide/inoculants used on your farm and can offer extra insurance to the grower because of its separate, novel M.O.A.
Check with your local dealer / distributor if self-treating and unsure.
