Nova fungicide for artichokes, greenhouse eggplant

The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) recently announced the approval of URMULE registrations for Novafungicidefor control of powdery mildew on globe artichokes and greenhouse eggplant in Canada. Novafungicidewas already labeled for use on a number of crops in Canada for control of several diseases. 

 

These minor use projects were submitted by Ontario’s minor use program as a result of minor use priorities established by growers and extension personnel. 

 

The following is provided as an abbreviated, general outline only. Users should be making pest management decisions within a robust integrated pest management program and should consult the complete label before using Novafungicide.

 

 

Novafungicide is toxic to birds, small wild mammals, aquatic organisms and non-target terrestrial plants. The use of this chemical may result in contamination of groundwater particularly in areas where soils are permeable (i.e. sandy soil) and/or the depth to the water table is shallow. Do not contaminate aquatic habitats when spraying or when cleaning and rinsing spray equipment or containers. 

 

Follow all other precautions and directions for use on the Novafungicide label carefully. 

 

For a copy of the new minor use label contact your local crop specialist, regional supply outlet or visit the PMRA label site.
