Syllit 400 FL fungicide label

Peach leaf curl

The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) recently announced the approval of a minor use label expansion registration for Syllit fungicide for control of peach leaf curl on peaches and nectarines and cherry leaf spot on cherries in Canada. Syllit fungicide was already labeled for use apples and pears in Canada for control of scab.

 

This minor use project was submitted by Ontario as a result of minor use priorities established by growers and extension personnel.
