Priwen™ fungicide is a highly effective tool for growers to combat powdery mildew
Guelph, ON (April 19, 2016) – Bayer has announced the launch of Priwen fungicide for control of powdery mildew in Canadian wine grapes.
“At Bayer, we are dedicated to pursuing new tools that address
specific needs for growers,” said Jon Weinmaster, Portfolio Manager,
Horticulture, at Bayer CropScience Inc. “As the only Group 5 fungicide
available for wine grape growers in Canada, Priwen not only offers
growers a new and unique foliar fungicide, but one that is highly
effective against powdery mildew.”
Priwen offers xylem-mobile systemic protection, moving to the leaf tips and underside of leaves.
“Thanks to its unique
active ingredient, Priwen is also an excellent rotation and resistance
management tool, which supports wine grape growers’ efforts to manage
tough diseases year after year,” said Weinmaster.
Priwen is formulated as a 500 g/L emulsifiable concentrate and is available in 1L jugs, with 12 X 1L jugs per case.
For more information regarding Priwen, growers are encouraged to talk to their local retailers, visit cropscience.bayer.ca/priwen, or follow @Bayer4CropsCA on Twitter.
