Citrus Post-Harvest Fungicide Now Registered in Louisiana

Graduate A+, a combination of the fungicides fludioxonil and azoxystrobin, is now registered for use in Louisiana as a post-harvest fungicide treatment on citrus.  As part of the federal quarantine for Sweet Orange Scab, all citrus fruit being shipped out of the quarantined areas (Arizona, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas) must be treated with a fungicide prior to packing.
