California growers can now use Luna fungicide for a wide range of fruit, tree nut and vegetable crops thanks to a wider registration approval.
"This label expansion offers key fungicide options to horticulture growers in California," Bayer Product Manager Joel Lipsitch said. "With three Luna formulations, growers will have tailored solutions for their key disease management challenges."
Luna's fungicide portfolio, including Luna Sensation, Luna Experience and Luna Tranquility, provides broad-spectrum disease protection. Specifically, Luna Sensation is registered for tree nuts, pome fruit, stone fruit, citrus, strawberries, carrots, leafy, brassica, fruiting and cucurbit vegetables; Luna Experience is registered for grapes, tree nuts, cucurbit vegetables and hops; and Luna Tranquility is registered for potatoes, bulb crops, tomatoes, pome fruit, strawberries and caneberries/bushberries.
"Luna has been tested extensively in field trials across the U.S. on numerous crops," Lipsitch said. "California growers have embraced Luna for its outstanding control of key diseases in crops like tree nuts and wine grapes, and we are excited to bring this outstanding disease control to an even larger group of California crops."
The late-season benefits of the Luna portfolio help the storability of harvested produce, reduced post-harvest losses and extended shelf life. The portfolio helps control the most problematic fungal diseases.
