April 7, 2015  By Press release

April 6, 2015, Calgary, Alta – Canadian organic horticultural growers have a new copper hydroxide available for use in vegetable production.

Parasol WG is now compliant with Canadian Organic Standards. All product manufactured after 2013 contains only substances that appear on the Organic Production Systems Permitted Substances Lists and is suitable for use in organic agriculture.

Parasol WG is a wettable granular formulation of copper hydroxide used to control various fungal diseases in beans (dry and edible), potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers and sugar beets. An easy-to-use, dust-free formulation, Parasol WG controls Bacterial Spot, Cercospora Leaf Blight, Common Bacterial Blight, Early and Late Blight, and Halo Bacterial Blight.


“Parasol WG offers an important management tool in organic operations when cultural practices alone aren’t enough to control fungal diseases,” says Sabrina Bladon, Eastern marketing manager with Nufarm Agriculture Inc.

Parasol WG is now certified by Pro-Cert, providing professional organic certification to the Canadian Organic Standard and Products Regulation (COR). All newly certified product can be clearly identified by date of manufacture (2014 and later) and lot number (beginning with 14) located at the base of the 10 kg paper bag of Parasol WG.
