More Vegetable Fungicide Updates for 2012

I wrote last week about some new and recent fungicide registrations of interest to vegetable growers. Two additional registrations occurred in the last week.

  • · Luna Experience has now received a label for use on watermelon in both DE and MD. Diseases on the label include gummy stem blight, anthracnose, and powdery mildew.
  • · Meteor is a new fungicide from United Phosphorus, Inc., with the active ingredient of iprodione. It is labeled for beans (white and grey mold), broccoli, carrots, Chinese mustard, bulb dry onions, garlic and lettuce (drop and bottom rot). See label for more details. There are other fungicides that are labeled for similar diseases on vegetables with the same active ingredient, such as Rovral.
