Calgary, AB [October 1, 2018] – Pome and stone fruit growers have a new dormant fungicide option to deliver effective protection from several tough diseases with the recent label expansion for Parasol® FL (flowable) fungicide. Parasol FL – a group M1 copper hydroxide fungicide – is the first flowable copper hydroxide registered for use on apples, pears, cherries, peaches, nectarines, apricots, hazelnuts and filberts.
The Parasol FL formulation has one of the smallest and most consistent particle size of copper on the market providing optimal coverage and protection of diseases including fire blight, coryneum blight, bacterial blight, eastern filbert blight, bacterial canker and leaf curl. Parasol FL also contains higher metallic copper equivalent (MEC) than some of the other copper products on the market, adding to its ability to control tough diseases
“Vegetable growers already know the benefits of using Parasol FL – effective disease protection in a flowable product that’s easy to use, stays in suspension and is highly compatible with other products,” says Maria Dombrowsky, Canadian Horticulture Manager with Nufarm Agriculture Inc. “Tree fruit and nut growers can now access the powerful protection of Parasol FL with our expanded new label.”
Application coverage is key for optimum disease protection with fungicide products like Parasol FL. “Better coverage on the leaf surface of fruits or vegetables delivers better disease protection, and that’s exactly what growers can expect from Parasol FL with its small particle size and easy to use formulation,” says Dombrowsky.
Parasol FL is used as a dormant application only for tree fruits and nuts, and is also registered in beans, cucumbers, peppers, potatoes and tomatoes.
