As things thaw and everyone gets into the fields I thought it would be a good time to update you on a few products that have been registered for strawberries since the 2015 season.

Cueva® Commercial (Group M1 Fungicide) for control of Powdery Mildew on strawberry.  
Assail® 70WP Insecticide (Group 4 Insecticide) for control of Aphids, Leaf hoppers, and Tarnished Plant Bugs on strawberry. 
Kenja™ 400SC Fungicide (Group 7 Insecticide) for control of Botrytis Grey Mold on strawberry.
Beleaf™ 50SG Insecticide (Group 9C Insecticide) for control of Aphids and suppression of Lygus bugs in both field and greenhouse strawberry.

PMRA Information Note Regarding Pesticide Use in High Tunnels – Please refer to the link for complete information.  “Pesticides currently registered in Canada have not been specifically assessed for use in high tunnels. While the PMRA is developing a regulatory position, the application of pesticide products registered to manage specific pests on crops grown in field and/or greenhouses will be permitted for use in high tunnels, unless stated otherwise on the label.
