Quadris® Fungicide label expanded via Minor Use Program for control of Anthracnose (leaf curl) on celery in Canada

The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) recently announced the approval of an URMULE registration for Quadris Fungicide for control of Anthracnose (leaf curl) on celery in Canada. Quadris Fungicide was already labeled for use on a number of crops in Canada for control of diseases. 

This minor use project was initiated in 2015 and submitted to PMRA by Ontario 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 IPM program and should consult the complete label before using Quadris Fungicide.

Crop Target Rate (L/ha) Applications
Celery Anthrocnose (Leaf curl) 1.12 Maximum of 3

Quadris Fungicide is toxic to aquatic organisms. Do not apply this product or allow drift to other crops or non-target areas. Do not contaminate off-target areas or aquatic habitats when spraying or when cleaning and rinsing spray equipment or containers. Azoxystrobin is persistent and will carryover. It is recommended that this product not be used in areas treated with azoxystrobin during the previous season. The use of this product may result in contamination of ground water, particularly in areas where soils are permeable (e.g. sandy soil) and/or the depth to the water table is shallow. 

Follow all other precautions and directions for use on the Quadris Fungicide 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 http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/cps-spc/pest/registrant-titulaire/tools-outils/la...
