There’s one topic dominating the pest control conversation these days: the upcoming cancellation of iprodione. The loss of this active ingredient will forever change the Canadian fungicide landscape.
Here’s what you can do to prepare for the change:
USE THE CHEMISTRY WHILE YOU CAN
Losing iprodione will put more reliance on DMI and SDHIs – two mode-of-action groups with the highest susceptibility to resistance of any fungicide group. Slow the development of fungicide-resistant disease by including iprodione in your pest management program, and get effective control while you can.
