Excalia fungicide registered for apples

Nufarm, in partnership with Valent Canada, has received registration for Excalia fungicide for the control of scab and powdery mildew in apples and suppression of rhizoctonia crown and root rot in sugar beets. 


Excalia, a group 7 SDHI fungicide with the active ingredient indiflin, delivers locally systemic and translaminar action for complete leaf tissue uptake and distribution across the entire leaf surface. 


“The key with most diseases is early season preventative treatment,” said Alicia Sebastian, horticulture sales specialist at Nufarm. “For apple growers especially, Excalia is a new tool that helps them get a clean start to the season and minimize spreading of primary scab and powdery mildew.”


In apples, Excalia must be applied between green tip and petal fall. This fungicide is highly active against the apple scab pathogen and it works to inhibit spore production, spore germination and actively growing fungi. For powdery mildew protection, Excalia must be applied with a silicone surfactant and tank mixes well with other fungicides and foliar nutrients providing flexibility in early season spraying.


 There is good supply of Excalia for the 2021 season. Application timing is approaching and growers are encouraged to book product now. For additional information go to Nufarm.ca or call 1-800-868-5444.
