Indar Fungicide Approved For Apples, Pome Fruit

Brian Olson, product technology specialist for Dow AgroSciences, recommends that Indar be tank-mixed with a protectant like Dithane DF Rainshield fungicide from pink through second cover. He recommends that application of Indar begin at green tip or when environmental conditions are favorable for disease development. Indar should be applied on a seven- to 10-day schedule through the first cover spray, then 10 to 14 days afterward. While Indar provides good activity against powdery mildew, Olson adds that Dow recommends orchardists use Nova 40W fungicide when powdery mildew is their chief concern.

Indar will be available in water-soluble pouches known as Indar 75WSP. This formulation is currently available for use in stone fruits like peaches, apricots, nectarines, and cherries. It will eventually be available in a flowable formulation, to be known as Indar 2F.
