Rovral registered

Brown rot on peach (L) and nectarine.

FMC of Canada has announced the registration of Rovral fungicide WP for use on nectarine crops in Canada. The wettable powder product controls the blossom blight form of brown rot while protecting fruit against infection.  Rovral is a Fungicide Resistance Action Committee (FRAC) group 2 dicarboximide fungicide.  As a group 2 product, Rovral will be an important tool in the fight against fungicide resistance for the nectarine crop.  A one-day pre-harvest interval (PHI) contributes to the versatility of the product.

 

“Addition of nectarines to the Rovral fungicide WP label introduces a new mode of action for brown rot,” says Wayne Myers, eastern business manager for FMC  Canada. “Nectarines have grown in popularity in recent years with both consumers and growers and now account for 15 per cent of the tender fruit acreage in Canada. It is important for growers to have access to Rovral fungicide WP as a rotational treatment to help slow the development of resistance,” Myers added. 

 

On March 31, 2017, FMC announced the signing of a definitive agreement to acquire a significant portion of DuPont's Crop Protection business and to sell FMC Health and Nutrition to DuPont. Closing is expected to occur in the fourth quarter of 2017. For more information on FMC crop protection products, please visit www.FMCcrop.ca.
