New Overall fungicide with iprodine
Jan. 23, 2012, Winnipeg, MB - Makhteshim Agan of North America, Inc. (MANA), announced the registration of Overall 240 SC fungicide for control of Sclerotinia stem rot and Alternaria black spot in canola. With iprodione, the same active ingredient as Rovral, Overall is a Group 2 dicarboximide fungicide with protective and eradicant activity.
Research on canola shows that Sclerotinia stem rot can devastate yield. An Argentine canola field with 50 percent main stem infection can suffer a yield loss of 25 percent. Overall protects the canola grower’s investment by controlling Sclerotinia and Alternaria and helping to produce higher yield and quality.
“The biggest benefit that Overall provides canola growers is freedom from seed bundles and grower programs,” explains Andrew Mann, MANA Canada’s General Manager at Winnipeg, Manitoba. “Overall will be fairly priced to all canola growers whether they buy 160 acres or 5,000 acres of canola seed, and you don’t have to wait for your grower program rebate. We encourage canola and alfalfa growers to support competition and fair pricing in crop protection market by asking for Overall by name.”
