The California Department of Pesticides Regulation has granted California registration to Procure 480SC Fungicide for use on 28 additional fruit and vegetable crops. The registration gives growers a powerful new tool for controlling powdery mildew and black spot on crops in the brassica leafy greens, brassica head and stem, leafy greens, tropicals and hops subgroups.
Procure is a broad-spectrum foliar fungicide and has been previously approved for a variety of other fruit and vegetable crops including apples, pears, cherries and melons. It has proven to provide outstanding control of common fungal diseases including powdery mildew, scab, leaf spot and black spot.
"Controlling powdery mildew is a challenge that most fruit and vegetable growers face year-in and year-out," said John Descary, marketing manager, Chemtura Crop Protection. "Growers who have come to rely on Procure know it is a highly effective tool and natural fit as a rotational or tank-mix partner for mildew control problems. Chemtura is pleased to offer this fungicide to even more growers to help them continue to provide quality vegetables to consumers."
Procure may be applied by air or ground. Application rates and preharvest intervals vary depending on the crop being treated. To view a supplemental label for application details visit
