FMC acquired Rovral from Bayer CropScience last year.

The wettable powder formulation of Rovral has a good fit with a number of high value fruit and vegetable crops and is registered for use on cherries, grapes, peaches, plums, raspberries, strawberries, garlic, ginseng, lettuce and onions, among others. 

In addition to its disease control properties, Rovral also delivers a number of other benefits to fruit and vegetable growers, including improved stability in crops such as cabbage and cauliflower. As a Group 2 fungicide, Rovral can be a good rotational product on fruit and vegetable crops that typically receive multiple treatments.

The active ingredient in Rovral is iprodione and the wettable powder formulation can be applied using aerial, field, knapsack, orchard or small sprayers.
