The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) has 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 greenhouse lettuce project was sponsored by MAPAQ (Quebec ministry of agriculture) 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.
Do not contaminate off-target areas or aquatic habitats when spraying or when cleaning and rinsing spray equipment or containers.
Follow all precautions and detailed directions for use on the Milstop fungicide label carefully.
