Jim Chaput, OMAFRA, Minor Use Coordinator, Guelph

The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) recently announced the approval of an URMULE registration for IndarTM Fungicide for control mummy berry on highbush blueberries in Canada. IndarTM Fungicide was already labeled for management of several diseases on stone fruit in Canada.

This minor use project was submitted by Ontario in 2013 as a result of minor use priorities established by growers and extension personnel in Canada.

The following is provided as an abbreviated, general outline only. Users should consult the complete label before using IndarTM Fungicide.

Crop(s) Diseases Rate (g/ha) Applications Interval (days) PHI (days)
Highbush blueberries Mummy berry 140 Maximum of 4 10 – 14 30

IndarTM Fungicide should be used in an integrated pest management program and in rotation with other management strategies to adequately manage resistance. IndarTM Fungicide is toxic to aquatic organisms. Do not contaminate aquatic habitats when spraying or when cleaning and rinsing spray equipment or containers. Fenbuconazole is persistent and may carry-over, therefore it is recommended that fenbuconazole not be used in areas treated with this product during the previous season.

Follow all other precautions and directions for use on the IndarTM Fungicide label carefully.
