May 29, 2009, Guelph, Ont.– After several years of emergency use registrations, Tattoo C fungicide has received full registration for control of downey mildew in cucurbit crops.
 
Tattoo C contains two active ingredients – propamocarb hydrochloride (Group U) and chlorothalonil (Group M) – for systemic control of downy mildew in horticulture crops including melons, squash, pumpkins and cucumbers.
 
For best results, apply Tattoo C when conditions favour disease infection, but before downy mildew infection occurs. Continue applying on seven to 14 day intervals until the disease threat is over. Tattoo C is registered for a maximum of five applications per season with a two-day pre-harvest interval.
 
Tattoo C provides a new addition to growers’ integrated pest management (IPM) plans. When using Tattoo C at more than seven-day intervals, always alternate with a contact fungicide for sound resistance management.
 
Tattoo C is also registered for control of late blight in potatoes.
