In 2005, Gubler, Hao & Dell of UC Davis reported that Procure applied at 6 fl oz/A either as a stand-alone fungicide or in a rotational program with Flint (2 oz/A) provided excellent control of powdery mildew under severe disease infection.

Fungicides were sprayed beginning at bud-break until veraison on a very susceptible variety, Chardonnay in a commercial vineyard in Courtland, Calif. Application of the new formulation of Procure 480SC was found to be safe to the vines and berries.

Chemtura encourages responsible resistance management strategies by rotating or tank-mixing with non-DMI fungicides to ensure effective long-term control of powdery mildew.

Procure 480SC is an excellent resistance management option and offers suppression of Botrytis in grapes. For more information on Procure 480SC, call 1-559-224-8910 or visit www.chemtura.com.
