Acapela approved for sclerotinia control
By Top Crop Manager
Dec. 18, 2013, Saskatoon, SK - The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) has approved a label addition allowing the use of DuPont Acapela fungicide in canola for control of sclerotinia.
Sclerotinia is one of the most economically damaging diseases of canola, potentially reducing yields by up to 50 per cent in extreme cases.
Acapela was first registered in 2012 for control of key leaf diseases in pulses, cereals, corn and soybeans. Acapela, a Group 11 fungicide, contains the active ingredient picoxystrobin. This active ingredient moves across, into and around the leaf to deliver strong preventative and residual activity.
