New flowable formulation of Parasol

June 24, 2015  By Press release

June 24, 2015, Calgary, Alta – Parasol Flowable fungicide offers flowable copper hydroxide to protect vegetable crops from blight. The new formulation stays in suspension to deliver better coverage.

Parasol Flowable is a Group M1 fungicide approved for use in edible beans, cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes and potatoes. Applied as a protective spray, Parasol Flowable controls bacterial spot, Cercospora leaf blight, common bacterial blight, early and late blight, and halo bacterial blight.

“Protecting high value vegetable crops from blight requires consistent coverage in a fungicide,” says James Ferrier, Eastern technical manager with Nufarm Agriculture Inc. “And the small particle size in the new formulation means Parasol Flowable stays in solution for better plant coverage.”

Parasol Flowable is formulated with small and consistent sized copper particles. The product quickly disperses in water, stays stable in liquid formulation and provides better plant coverage for superior blight protection. Parasol Flowable does not require any additional surfactants, and can be used in a high or low volume spray with all types of spray equipment.
