Further full label and off-label approvals for Signum fungicide

Lettuce and strawberries have been re-instated to the label for the protectant and systemic acting fungicide Signum, which is widely used across the horticultural industry.

The two crops were removed from the label earlier this year.In addition, Signum has been given label approval for use on blackcurrants.

Signum has also been granted specific off-label approval (SOLA) for use on a wide variety of other crops.

BASF agronomy manager Simon Townsend said: "These new SOLAs will help growers who are increasingly struggling to find suitable and effective fungicides that can be used on their specialist crops."

He said Signum had full label recommendations for use on broccoli or calabrese, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, carrots, cauliflowers, combining peas, field beans, vining peas, outdoor lettuce, protected lettuce, protected and outdoor strawberries and blackcurrants.

In addition, Signum has SOLA for use on white and yellow chard, bulls blood, spinach, spinach beet, endive, leeks, forest nursery plants, leafy brassica crops grown for baby leaf production, a range of protected herbs, bulb onions, garlic, shallots, salad onions, asparagus, potatoes and poppy grown for morphine production.

In the fruit sector, new SOLAs have been granted for protected and outdoor blackberries and raspberries, as well as outdoor redcurrants, whitecurrants, soft fruit in propagation, cherries, mirabelles and plums.
