New Pre-Harvest Fungicide Effectively Manages Post-Harvest Diseases

Posted on April 09, 2020


Visalia, Calif., April 9, 2020 – Sym-Agro’s Cinnerate broad-spectrum fungicide now gives high-value conventional and organic fruit growers a new tool to protect their fruit during shipping and storage.

“Post-harvest fruit rot diseases present a significant challenge for growers, as most post-harvest diseases infections in the field come at different times during the growing season,” says Sym-Agro President Peter Bierma. “While in-season fungicide programs can manage some of the diseases, Cinnerate provides broad-spectrum disease control and a multi-site mode of action with fungicidal activity toward all life stages.”

The updated supplemental use guidelines include directions for in-season and pre-harvest applications on grapes, berries, stone fruit, pome fruit and citrus.

Cinnerate provides broad-spectrum control of diseases including Botrytis, Mucor, Rhizopus, Phomopsis, Monilinia, Penicillium, Anthracnose and more. It provides activity toward spore, mycelium and hyphae for a complete sanitation. With growing incidence of fungicide resistance and the potential for gaps in disease control, Cinnerate provides a reliable option for post-harvest disease.

Cinnerate is an OMRI-listed biopesticide with more than seven years of commercial use in high-value fruits, nuts and vine crops. It has a 0-day PHI and is MRL exempt, so it can be used up to the day of harvest. This also allows treated fruit to be safely exported to all countries.
