New Bumper ES Fungicide Receives EPA Approval

  • Advanced formulation improves performance, handling and air quality
  • Offers broad-spectrum preventive and curative disease control on many crops
  • Critical component for reducing risk associated with disease resistance

Bumper® ES fungicide, manufactured by MANA, has received approval by the EPA for its new state-of-the-art formulation that provides broad-spectrum control of foliar fungal diseases on corn, soybeans, sorghum and other crops.

Bumper ES has an advanced propiconazole formulation that performs at levels equivalent to emusifiable concentrate (EC) products but with improved environmental, handling and safety qualities. With exceptionally low use rates, low odor and favorable personal protective equipment requirements, Bumper ES offers significant improvements in ease of use and convenience versus competitive delivery platforms. It also minimizes environmental concerns by reducing impact on air quality, and it hosts a “Caution” signal word on its label.

Delivering uncompromised performance in preventive and curative disease management against brown leaf spot, Septoria leaf blight, glume blotch, rusts and many others, Bumper ES is classified as a FRAC Group 3 fungicide. It is currently registered for use on almonds, berries, cereals, citrus, corn, peanuts, pecans, rice, sorghum, soybeans, stone fruit, sugarcane and tree nuts.

“Bumper ES supports the industry in placing less reliance on older EC-based products,” said Dave Rummel, MANA brand leader. “While the older and more traditional EC offerings have been effective in providing good disease control, use of these products is on the decline due to new and pending pesticide regulations.”

According to Rummel, advanced crop protection tools such as Bumper ES allow active ingredients like propiconazole to have a continued and highly relevant presence in the marketplace.
