Fungicide given residue limits for exports to Japan
The recent decision by Japan’s ministry of health labor and welfare establishes MRLs for fluopyram, the active ingredient in Luna.
“We are very excited to receive Japanese MRLs for Luna fungicide,” said Charlie Bergmann, product manager for Bayer CropScience. “This is great news for growers who want to incorporate Luna treatments into their management programs on crops being exported to Japan.”
Luna fungicide received registration from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in 2012 and has since become recognized as a valuable tool for growers in multiple horticultural crops. Luna provides growers with a high level of systemic disease control, as well as additional benefits in several crops, including reduction of year-over-year disease pressure in orchards, fruit quality improvements and crop storability enhancements.
Luna also boasts the new chemistry that combats disease resistance issues that many growers are facing, a Bayer CropScience spokesperson noted. With the new MRLs in place, growers have additional flexibility when utilizing Luna to help them overcome tough disease issues and deliver the highest quality crop possible.
