The Canadian Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) has proposed the full registration for the sale and use of DuPont's fungicide seed treatment, DPX-YT669 250FS (picoxystrobin), to control soil and seed-borne blackleg, seed borne Alternaria caused by A. brassicae in canola, rapeseed and mustards and the seedling disease complex (damping off, seedling blight, seed rot and root rot) caused by Fusarium spp. and Rhizoctonia solani in canola, rapeseed, mustards, corn and soybeans. The public comments will be closed on April 12, 2015.

Picoxystrobin is a quinone outside inhibitor (QoI) class of fungicide that inhibits mitochondrial respiration. It is classified as a group 11 fungicide by the Fungicide Resistance Action Committee (FRAC). Picoxystrobin was previously registered in the end-use product Acapela Fungicide (registration number 30470) for foliar and soil applications to control a broad spectrum of fungal diseases in numerous crops.
