Luna Sensation for 2018

Bayer announces the launch of Luna Sensation fungicide in Canada for stone fruit, root vegetables, cucurbit vegetables, leafy green vegetables, leafy petiole vegetables, brassica vegetables and hops. The foliar product is a co-formulation of two fungicide modes of action, a unique Group 7 SDHI (fluopyram) and a proven Group 11 (trifloxystrobin) to deliver superior disease control, resulting in higher yields and exceptional fruit quality.

 

“Luna Sensation gives Canadian growers further access to the excellent disease control provided by Luna,” said Jon Weinmaster, crop & campaign marketing manager, corn & horticulture. “It’s designed for optimal efficacy on specific crops and diseases, most of which are not covered by the Luna Tranquility label, a product that has proven invaluable to many horticulture growers for several years already.”

 

Luna Sensation is a systemic fungicide that targets highly problematic diseases such as sclerotinia rot, powdery mildew, and monilinia.

 

It also has added benefits for soft fruit.

 

“Experiences of American and Canadian growers show that Luna offers post-harvest benefits in soft fruit, improving quality during transit and storage,” says Weinmaster.

 

The addition of Luna Sensation from Bayer extends the trusted protection of the Luna brand to a broader range of crops:

• Luna Tranquility, a Group 7 and Group 9 fungicide, is registered for apples, grapes, tomatoes, bulb vegetables, small berries and potatoes

• Luna Sensation is registered for stone fruit, root vegetables, cucurbit vegetables, leafy green and petiole vegetables, Brassica vegetables and hops

 

Luna Sensation will be available to Canadian growers for the 2018 season.

 

For more information regarding Luna Sensation, growers are encouraged to talk to their local retailer or visit cropscience.bayer.ca/LunaSensation.
