The
wettable powder formulation of Rovral has a good fit with a number of high
value fruit and vegetable crops and is registered for use on cherries, grapes,
peaches, plums, raspberries, strawberries, garlic, ginseng, lettuce and onions,
among others. 

In
addition to its disease control properties, Rovral also delivers a number of
other benefits to fruit and vegetable growers, including improved stability in
crops such as cabbage and cauliflower. As a Group 2 fungicide, Rovral can be a
good rotational product on fruit and vegetable crops that typically receive
multiple treatments.

The
active ingredient in Rovral is iprodione and the wettable powder formulation
can be applied using aerial, field, knapsack, orchard or small sprayers.
