March 11, 2015, Guelph, Ont – The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) recently announced the approval of several URMULE registrations for Vivando Fungicide for control/suppression of powdery mildew on fruiting vegetables, cucurbits, hops, cherries, nectarines and peaches in Canada.

Vivando Fungicide was already labeled for management of powdery mildew on grapes in Canada.

These minor use projects were submitted jointly by Agriculture & Agri-Food Canada’s Pest Management Centre (AAFC-PMC) and US IR-4 as a result of minor use priorities established by growers and extension personnel in Canada and the US. Management of powdery mildews has been a priority of producers of many crops.
