Luna Receives MRL Approval for Japan -Bound Crops

Published in the September 2013 Issue Published online: Sep 23, 2013

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C.-Bayer CropScience announced in July that Maximum Residue Limits (MRLs) for Luna fungicide have been established in Japan, effective immediately. The recent decision by Japan's Ministry of Health Labor and Welfare establishes MRLs for fluopyram, the active ingredient in Luna.

Luna fungicide received registration from the U.S. EPA in 2012 and has since become recognized as a valuable tool for growers in multiple horticultural crops. Luna provides growers with a new level of systemic disease control, as well as additional benefits in several crops, including reduction of year-over-year disease pressure in orchards, fruit quality improvements and crop storability enhancements. Luna also boasts a new chemistry that combats disease resistance issues that many growers are facing. With the new MRLs in place, growers have additional flexibility when utilizing Luna to help them overcome tough disease issues and deliver the highest-quality crop possible.
