Bayer CropScience announced that Japan has established Maximum Residue Limits (MRLs) for Emesto® Silver potato seed treatment, effective immediately.
Governments set MRLs to establish safe amounts of pesticide residue that is permitted to remain on a commodity. The recent decision by Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare establishes MRLs for prothioconazole, one of the two active ingredients in Emesto Silver. The MRL for penflufen, the other active ingredient, was established previously.
“We’re excited for the newest Emesto Silver MRL because it gives growers who export to Japan another tool to manage seed and soil-borne diseases,” said Dave Byrum, Bayer CropScience SeedGrowth senior product manager. “Emesto Silver promotes early plant establishment and acts as the first line of defense against tough diseases growers may face throughout the growing season.”
With this new MRL in place, Japan joins the list of major markets with established import tolerance for Emesto Silver. 
Since its introduction in 2013, Emesto Silver potato seed treatment fungicide has been proven to help growers control diseases. Emesto Silver uses two modes of action to attack the toughest diseases, such as Rhizoctonia, Fusarium and Helminthosporium Silver Scurf, while promoting early emergence, improving early vigor and fostering uniform stands. The new class of chemistry featured in Emesto Silver results in improved plant vitality, increased yield potential and potatoes with a high-quality finish.
