The Kumulus DF fungicide label has been expanded via the Minor Use Program to help manage diseases on nectarines in Canada.
The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) recently announced the approval of a minor use label expansion registration for Kumulus DF fungicide for control of brown rot, bacterial leaf spot, scab, and powdery mildew on nectarines in Canada. Kumulus DF fungicide was already labeled for management of diseases on a wide range of crops in Canada. This minor use proposal was submitted by the British Columbia Ministry of Agriculture, Food, and Fisheries 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 disease management decisions within a robust integrated disease management program and should consult the complete label before using Kumulus DF fungicide.
Do not apply directly to aquatic habitats (such as lakes, rivers, sloughs, ponds, coulees, prairie potholes, creeks, marshes, streams, reservoirs, and wetlands) and estuarine/marine habitats. Do not contaminate water by cleaning of equipment or disposing of waste. DO NOT allow effluent or runoff from greenhouses containing this product to enter lakes, streams, ponds or other waters.
