May 4, 2015  By Press release

May 4, 2015, Regina, Sask – FMC Agricultural Solutions recently launched Fracture fungicide, a new broad spectrum biological fungicide labeled for the prevention and control of powdery mildew and botrytis on grapes, strawberries and tomatoes and blossom blight in stone fruits.

Fracture fungicide introduces a novel active ingredient that is a naturally occurring polypeptide protein derived from germinating sweet lupine.

“Since announcing Biosolutions as a strategic initiative for FMC, we have been working hard to find the right truly biological source to launch this division in Canada,” said Mark McMillan, FMC business manager for Eastern Canada. “We feel that Fracture fungicide will be a strong asset in the fungicide market, both among biological and traditional fungicides.“


Fracture fungicide also introduces a new mode of action to disease management, providing multi-site control.  

“We are excited to be able to offer this innovative technology to the Canadian grower,” said David Strilchuk, Canadian manager with FMC. “FMC prides itself on being a leader in bringing solutions to growers, both in traditional chemistry and biological options. Fracture adds another tool for growers in their fight against disease and resistance.”

Fracture will be distributed by UAP.
