UAP Canada has announced registration of Echo, a new chlorothalonil-based fungicide for several crops including pulses, blueberries, wheat, tomatoes, ginseng and potatoes. Chlorothalonil is also the active ingredient for Bravo.
UAP says Echo is a more concentrated formulation of chlorothalonil product than has previously been available in Canada. It says Echo’s effectiveness is enhanced by the manufacturer’s DuraShield formulation, which helps the product to stick and is rainfast once dried on the plant surface.
There will be two formulations of Echo – 720 liquid and 90 DF dry, available in both jugs and totes in the liquid formulation and in 10-kilogram bags for the dry formulation. The product does not require a surfactant. Both formulations are approved for aerial application.
