Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA), under the authority of the Pest Control Products Act, is granting registration for the sale and use of EcoSwing Technical and EcoSwing Botanical Fungicide containing the technical grade active ingredient Extract of Swinglea glutinosa, for the control, suppression or partial suppression of common fungal diseases that reduce harvest quality and yields of these crops and fungicide resistance management on field-grown blueberry, certain pome fruits, stone fruits, berries and small fruits, cucurbit vegetables and greenhouse-grown berries and small fruits, cucurbit vegetables, stone fruits and ornamentals.

The Proposed Registration Decision PRD2024-04, Extract of Swinglea glutinosa and EcoSwing Botanical Fungicide, containing the detailed evaluation of the information submitted in support of this registration, underwent a 45 day consultation period ending on 27 May 2024. The evaluation found that, under the approved conditions of use, the health and environmental risks and the value of the pest control products are acceptable. Health Canada received written comments relating to the assessments during the public consultation period conducted in accordance with section 28 of the Pest Control Products Act.

What is Extract of Swinglea glutinosa?

Extract of Swinglea glutinosa is a nonconventional contact biofungicide with a unique mode of action. It is derived from the leaves of the tropical citrus tree Tabog (Swinglea glutinosa), which is used for food and medicinal purposes. Itacts at multiple sites in fungal pathogens to disrupt cellular integrity, leading to cell leakage, inhibition of fungal growth and the induction of plant defences.

What is EcoSwing Botanical Fungicide?

EcoSwing Botanical Fungicide, containing Extract of Swinglea glutinosa at a concentration of 82.0%, is a nonconventional contact commercial biofungicide that attacks targeted fungal pathogens at multiple sites.

Multi-site fungicides with unique modes of action are important elements in a fungicide resistance management strategy. For this reason, the registration of EcoSwing Botanical Fungicide will provide growers of field-grown pome fruit crops, field- and greenhouse-grown Berries and Small Fruits (CG13-07), Cucurbit Vegetables (CG9) and Stone Fruit (CG12-09) crops and greenhouse-grown ornamental crops with a product that may be used to combat several common diseases and possibly delay the development of fungicide resistance to single-site fungicides. Use of this product may also help to reduce reliance on conventional chemical alternatives. A similar fungicide product has been registered in the US since July 2018 and is listed for organic use.
