Nov. 7, 2012 — The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) recently announced the approval of URMULE registrations for Milstop® Foliar Fungicide for suppression of powdery mildew diseases on hops, and crop group 19 – herbs and spices.
 
Milstop® Foliar Fungicide was already labelled on a wide range of fruit, vegetable and ornamental crops for powdery mildew diseases.

These minor use registrations target a common disease of herbs and hops in Canada and will help to provide a more robust pest and resistance management strategy.

Advertisment

Furthermore, organic producers of the approved crops now have wider access to Milstop foliar fungicide, which provides a very useful management tool.

Follow all other precautions and directions for use on the Milstop label carefully.

Milstop should be used in an integrated pest management program and in rotation with other management strategies to adequately manage resistance.

These minor use projects were sponsored in 2007 and 2010 by the minor use office of OMAFRA as a result of priorities established by growers and extension personnel.

We also wish to acknowledge the personnel of Bioworks Inc. for their support of this registration and the personnel of the Pest Management Regulatory Agency for evaluating and approving this important pest management tool.

For copies of the new minor use label, contact Melanie Filotas, OMAFRA, Simcoe, 519-426-4434; Jim Chaput, OMAFRA, Guelph, 519-826-3539; or visit the Bioworks Canada website.
