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. This minor use proposal was submitted by the Ministère de l'Agriculture, des Pêcheries et de l'Alimentation du Québec as a result of minor use priorities established by growers and extension personnel.
