Parasol fungicide label expanded

The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) recently announced the approval of an URMULE registration for Parasol fungicide (copper hydroxide) for management of several diseases of cranberries, grapes and hops in Canada. Parasol fungicide was already labeled for use on a number of crops in Canada for control / suppression of several diseases. 

 

These minor use projects were sponsored by British Columbia 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 Parasol fungicide.

 

 

Parasol fungicide is toxic to birds, small wild mammals, aquatic organisms and non-target terrestrial plants. 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 Parasol fungicide label carefully

 

For a copy of the new minor use label contact your local crop specialist, regional supply outlet or visit the PMRA label site here.
