Syngenta announced that the U.S. Environmental Protection has granted federal registration of new Micora foliar fungicide for use on ornamental crops, as well as certain vegetables grown for resale as transplants, on March 19, 2012.
Micora contains the active ingredient mandipropamid, a carboxylic acid amide fungicide that inhibits spore germination and delivers both preventive and curative protection.
“Micora brings the performance ornamental growers need against some of their most challenging foliar, stem and root diseases caused by downy mildew fungi and Phythophthora spp., including P. ramorum,” said Scott Lawson, marketing manager for Syngenta. “The new label also gives ornamental and transplant growers the flexibility to use Micora in both greenhouses and nurseries.”
