The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) recently announced the approval of a minor use label expansion registration for Diplomat 5SC Fungicide for control or suppression of various diseases on greenhouse and field grown fruits and vegetables in Canada. Diplomat 5SC Fungicide was already labeled for use against several diseases on outdoor and greenhouse grown crops in Canada.

These minor use projects were submitted by Ontario as a result of minor use priorities established by growers and extension personnel.
