PathoCURB – OMRI-Listed® Fungicide & Bactericide

Thyme Oil-Based Disease Control

PathoCURB™ is a thyme oil-based fungicide and bactericide concentrate that effectively prevents and/or cures a broad range of foliar pathogens on commercial plants and crops. Foliar spray application of PathoCURB helps control the incidence and severity of fungal and bacterial diseases via cell membrane disruption.

This mode of action makes PathoCURB an excellent biological product for growers to add in rotation to an Integrated Pest Management program to help lessen the likelihood of disease resistance development. PathoCURB is safe for workers and easy to use as it has a zero-day preharvest interval and zero-hour re-entry interval and can be used on all crops with no phytotoxicity observed when used at the labeled rates.

Advantages of PathoCURB

  • Natural and effective Ingredient: Thyme essential oil, a key component in PathoCURB, is a powerful plant-based active ingredient. It aids farmers in combatting harmful fungal and bacterial plant pathogens safely.

  • Prevents Resistance: Incorporating PathoCURB into your disease management program rotation can decrease the risk of resistance. This is because it provides a distinct fungicide-bactericide class and more modes of action to vary throughout the season, ensuring pathogens are consistently kept at bay.

  • No Pre-Harvest Intervals (PHI): Botanicals also have lower pre-harvest Intervals (PHI), allowing the grower to apply them closer to harvest time and still have a safe product for workers and consumers. 

  • No Re-Entry Intervals (REI): Unlike conventional products with longer re-entry intervals (REI), PathoCURB has a zero-hour REI allowing increased flexibility for growers.
  • FIFRA 25(b) Exemption: Unlike EPA-registered products, PathoCURB can be used on a wide variety of crops without limitations on application timing or frequency.
