Gowan Canada launches new miticide

January 25, 2023  By Fruit & Vegetable

On Jan. 25, Gowan Canada Inc. announced the launch of Magister SC miticide for the Canadian horticulture market. Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) granted registration for Magister SC on Jan. 23; the new miticide will be available for Canadian growers during the 2023 growing season.

Magister SC is a flowable formulation containing the active ingredient Fenazaquin, a Group 21A mode of action (MOA). It provides rapid action against certain species of mites in both Eriophyidae and Tetranychidae families (commonly called gall mites and spider mites, respectively) and pear psylla. In addition to these important pests, Magister SC is also classified as a FRAC Group 39 fungicide. This MOA is unique amongst other miticides, offering growers labelled control of powdery mildew in pome fruit, small fruit climbing vine, stone fruit, and cucurbits.

“Magister SC’s rapid knockdown under a range of conditions in key crops, along with proven activity on powdery mildew, will enable Canadian growers to continue producing high-quality fruits and vegetables,” states Dale Ziprick, product manager for Gowan Canada.
