Sipcam Agro USA Inc. has received full EPA Section 3 registration for Eminent(R) 125SL Fungicide. The fungicide has been the standard control product for Cercospora leafspot (Cercospora beticola) in sugarbeets over the past six years, but previously carried a Section 18 emergency use permit.

According to Tim Zech, agricultural business manager for Sipcam Agro USA, full EPA registration of Eminent is something growers have been wanting for years.

"Eminent is a critical Cercospora fungicide, and having it available whenever and wherever it is needed is very good news," Zech said. "Eminent gives sugarbeet growers a foundation control product for Cercospora as well as a terrific resistance management tool."
