UPL AgroSolutions Canada recently announced that the Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) has granted registration for Manzate Max liquid fungicide for use on fruit, including apples, potatoes and vegetable crops.

Manzate Max is a soluble concentrate formulation of Manzate fungicide, a market leader in providing superior protection from a broad spectrum of key diseases.

Manzate Max is a multi-site protectant fungicide (FRAC M3) that prevents pathogenic organisms from adapting and mutating. After fifty years of use, fungal strains have not developed resistance to Manzate, making the product an important component of a disease management program.

“Growers of fruit, potato and vegetable crops need tried-and-true crop solutions with positive resistant management profiles to rotate into their disease control programs,” says Trent McCrea, portfolio marketing manager, UPL AgroSolutions Canada. “Manzate has earned a reliable reputation over the years as a solid performer, and we’re pleased to bring this new formulation of a trusted ally to the market.”

Manzate Max will be available in limited quantities during its introductory season.

Manzate Max is available in a variety of crops, including apples, potatoes, field tomatoes, carrots, celery, onions, grapes, melons, lentils, wheat and others.

It provides effective control of Early and Late blight in potatoes; Rust and Scab in apples; and many other diseases such as Leaf spot, Anthracnose, Downy mildew, Alternaria leaf spot and more.
