Canada to OK difenoconazole for turf

The Canadian Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) has proposed the full approval of Syngenta's fungicide, difenoconazole, for use on turf. The active ingredient is already approved as a seed treatment and as a foliar fungicide for use on fruit and vegetable crops. The PMRA plans to register turf fungicides combining difenoconazole with Syngenta's new ai, benzovindiflupyr (trade-marked as Solatenol).  Last month, it proposed the registration of Ascernity (benzovindiflupyr 78 g/litre + difenoconazole 117 g/litre) and Instrata II, which is a co-pack of Instrata IIA (benzovindiflupyr 24 g/litre + difenoconazole 79 g/litre) and Instrata IIB (fludioxonil 125 g/litre), for use on golf course turf.  Ascernity is for the control of summer diseases and Instrata II is for use against pink and grey snow moulds (Microdochium nivale). The registration decisions are open to public comment until June 12th.
