Purogene® Potato

Purogene® is a premium-blend chlorine dioxide solution crafted specifically to eliminate gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, yeasts, mold and fungi, and is scientifically proven to be a powerful, broad-spectrum antimicrobial.

A pioneering product in specialty chlorine dioxide, Purogene is regarded as the best line of defense for potato disease management. With an outbreak of Phytophthora infestans (Late Blight), Purogene is not only effective in controlling this organism, but a range of other tuber-related diseases and spoilage organisms. In addition to its powerful antimicrobial properties, Purogene also eliminates odors without affecting nutritional quality. Work performed by the USDA, Michigan State University, North Dakota State University and the University of Manitoba substantiated earlier studies as to Purogene’s effectiveness. Not only does Purogene control the Late Blight organism but also controls other soft and black rot organisms which make conditions for Late Blight much worse. 


Purogene’s formulation is virtually odorless and environmentally friendly. Because of its stability, Purogene can be stored and transported with no special consideration.

Used in misting applications and pre-storage rinse, Purogene controls many microbial activities. Depending on conditions, Purogene is used at concentrations of between 200 and 400 ppm.

Used properly, Purogene is non-corrosive, easy to use and, most importantly, safe when used as directed.

Purogene is not regulated for transport and does not require any special US DOT permits.
