Cercobin fungicide approved in California

The California Department of Pesticide Regulation recently approved registration of the fungicide Cercobin, a new formulation of thiophanate-methyl. California growers may now use Cercobin to control a broad spectrum of diseases affecting their crops, according to Cheminova.

Cercobin provides preventative and curative disease control. It is a Group 1 fungicide and can be used alone, as a rotational partner or tank-mixed with other fungicides, depending on the crop. Cercobin controls white mold in dry and edible beans, cercospora on sugar beets, scab and sooty blotch on apples, brown rot on stone fruit and botrytis and powdery mildew on labeled crops, according to Cheminova.

For more information, contact your local crop protection dealer or look up Cercobin on the Cheminova website.
