Presidio label expanded for field and greenhouse use

Downy mildew on hops

The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) recently announced the approval of URMULE registrations for Presidio fungicide for control of downy mildew on field and greenhouse basil and downy mildew of hops, and suppression of Phytophthora blight and pod rot and downy mildew on edible podded beans in Canada. Presidio fungicide was already labeled for use on a number of crops in Canada for control of several diseases.

 

These minor use projects were sponsored by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, Pest Management Centre in collaboration with the US IR-4 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 disease management program and should consult the complete label before using Presidio fungicide.
