The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) recently announced the approval of an URMULE registration for Quash Fungicide for control of brown rot and blossom blight and suppression of cherry leaf spot, powdery mildew and scab on stone fruit and for suppression of eastern filbert blight on hazelnuts and control of brown rot and blossom blight on almonds in Canada. Quash Fungicide was already labeled for use on a number of crops in Canada for control of several diseases.
These minor use projects were submitted 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 Quash Fungicide.
Quash Fungicide is TOXIC to aquatic organisms, non-target terrestrial plants, birds and smallwild mammals. The use of this chemical 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. Do not permit Quash Fungicide to contaminate off-target areas or aquatic habitats when spraying or when cleaning and rinsing spray equipment or containers.
Follow all precautions and detailed directions for use on the Quash Fungicide label carefully.
