Acapela registered for additional disease threats
By Top Crop Manager
June 5, 2014 - The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) has approved the addition of stripe rust, net blotch and anthracnose to the list of diseases controlled by DuPont Acapela fungicide. Acapela is now registered for control of stripe rust in wheat, barley, oats, rye and triticale, for control of net blotch in barley and for control of anthracnose in lentils.
Acapela, a Group 11 fungicide, contains the active ingredient picoxystrobin, which moves across, into and around the leaf to deliver preventative, residual and post-infection activity.
Acapela was first registered in 2012 for control of key leaf diseases in pulses, cereals, corn and soybeans. Canola was added to the label in December 2013.
