More uses for Bayer's Proline in Canada
Bayer CropScience has received expanded Canadian approval for its established fungicide, Proline (prothioconazole), for use on cucurbits and certain berry crops, including blueberries. "Proline has been used for years by canola and cereal growers and now protects against some of the most concerning diseases for horticultural crops," says horticulture portfolio manager David Kikkert. It represents a new mode of action in many horticultural crops, he adds. Proline was first registered in Canada on canola, cereals and some other crops in 2007 (Agrow No 513, p 18). It was approved for use on maize in 2011 (Agrow No 612, p 26).
