DuPont’s Fontelis™ fungicide is now registered for use in Louisiana

I received notice today that DuPont’s Fontelis™ fungicide is now registered for use in Louisiana. The active ingredient is penthiopyrad, a carboxamide (SDHI) fungicide in FRAC group 7. Fontelis™ is labeled for the control of Botrytis gray mold, powdery mildew and Alternaria diseases, among others, and is labeled for use on strawberries, stone fruits and most vegetables. The pre-harvest interval ranges from 0-3 days for strawberries and most vegetables.  The same active ingredient is labeled as Vertisan™ for use on sweet corn and field crops.  For more information, see http://www2.dupont.com/Prod_Agriculture/en-ca/content/crop-protection/fontelis.html
