Canada approved Milstop foliar fungicide for powdery mildew in mint
Apr. 17, 2019
Milstop was already labeled for use on a number of crops in Canada for control/suppression of several diseases.
This minor use project was sponsored by OMAFRA as a result of minor use priorities established by growers and extension personnel.
The following is provided as an abbreviated, general outline only. Users should be making pest management decisions within a robust integrated disease management program and should consult the complete label before using Milstop.
For suppression of powdery mildew, apply Milstop foliar fungicide at a rate of 280 to 560 g per 1000 m2 to greenhouse-grown mint or 2.8 to 5.6 kg/ha to field-grown mint. Apply at the first sign of disease. Repeat at 7 to 14-day intervals until conditions are no longer favourable for disease development. Maximum 10 applications per season. Milstop can be applied up to the day of harvest.
Do not contaminate off-target areas or aquatic habitats when spraying or when cleaning and rinsing spray equipment or containers. Follow all precautions and detailed directions for use on the Milstop label carefully.
