Rudis approved for use on cauliflower

The fungicide Rudis with triazolinthione technology has gained approval for use on cauliflower and broccoli/calabrese. Its label now covers all the main outdoor brassica crops.

Autumn cauliflower usually needs two sprays. The Allium & Brassica Centre's Andy Richardson said Rudis (prothioconazole) fits well as the second spray after a strobilurin-based fungicide such as Nativo 75 WG (trifloxystrobin + tebuconazole).

He said: "It is clearly more effective than other products growers have been using later in the season."

Bayer product manager for vegetable crops Nathan Whitehouse added: "It combines exceptional protection with curative activity."
