Canada OKs MBI's Regalia Maxx for turf
The Canadian Pesticide Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) has issued a full registration decision for the use of US biopesticide company Marrone Bio Innovations' (MBI - Davis, California) biofungicide, Regalia Maxx (Reynoutria sachalinensis extract), for use on turf. It is for the control of dollar spot (Sclerotinia homeocarpa) and foliar anthracnose (Colletotrichum cereale). The PMRA proposed the authorisation in late October 2014. MBI received Canadian approval for Regalia Maxx for use on a range of fruit and vegetables, wheat and ornamentals in 2012.
