The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) recently announced the approval of a minor use label expansion registration for Fontelis  fungicide for suppression of sclerotinia stem rot caused by Sclerotinia sclerotiorum on Crop Group 9 (Cucurbit vegetables). Fontelis fungicide was already labeled for management of diseases on a wide range of crops in Canada.
