Bayer's Proline use extended in Canada
Bayer CropScience has been granted a further label expansion for its established fungicide, Proline (prothioconazole), in Canada. The latest crops to be added to the label are sunflowers and safflowers. It is the only demethylation inhibitor approved for use on these crops, providing a new mode of action against Sclerotinia head rot, the company points out. Proline was first registered in Canada on canola, cereals and some other crops in 2007. Use has since been expanded, most recently for cucurbits and certain berry crops (Agrow No 690, p 26).
