New Manzate® Pro-Stick™ fungicide has been registered and will be available to Canadian horticultural growers for the 2006 growing season, DuPont Canada announced recently. This new fungicide helps protect against many of the major diseases of concern to Canadian growers such as apple scab and early and late blight in potatoes. The small, uniform particles break up faster and dissolve instantly in water without foaming. The result is a homogeneous mixture that provides excellent leaf coverage and protection. The particles also stay in suspension longer to ensure consistent delivery of the active ingredient, mancozeb, to the leaf surface. Manzate® Pro-Stick™ fungicide has been approved for use on the following crops: apples, potatoes, cantaloupe, carrots, celery, field cucumbers, ginseng, melons, onions (dry bulb), pumpkin, watermelons, sugar beets, squash, field tomatoes (field and greenhouse), arborvitae, ash, Douglas fir, hawthorn, holly, ivy, juniper, oak, pine, sycamore, tobacco and wheat. Manzate® Pro-Stick™ will be available in 20 kg bags later this spring and should only be used as part of an integrated pest management program, with applications every seven to 10 days during the growing season to help protect new growth and provide complete plant coverage.
