The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) recently announced the approval of an URMULE registration for Milstop® Foliar Fungicide for suppression of powdery mildew on field and greenhouse mint and suppression of powdery mildew on greenhouse-grown lettuce in Canada. Milstop® Foliar Fungicide was already labeled for use on a number of crops in Canada for control / suppression of several diseases.
The mint minor use project was sponsored by OMAFRA and the GH lettuce project was sponsored by MAPAQ 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 pest management decisions within a robust integrated disease management program and should consult the complete label before using Milstop® Foliar Fungicide.
