Syngenta's Revus authorised for downy mildew control

Revus (MAPP 17443), manufactured and marketed by Syngenta UK, has been authorised for use as a fungicide for the control of downy mildew in protected and outdoor ornamental plant production, under EAMU 2763/16.

The active ingredient is 250 g/L mandipropamid. The maximum individual dose is 0.6 litres product / ha, with one application permitted on protected ornamentals, and two on outdoor ornamentals. In protected situations, the product must only be applied once the first true leaf has emerged.

This application was a re-registration application, and will allow ornamental growers to apply Revus registered with the new MAPP number (17443).

Neither the efficacy nor the phytotoxicity of this product has been assessed, therefore small-scale testing is recommended before wider use.
