New fungicides, registered or slated for registration, will give California Almond growers more choices to manage springtime foliar diseases.

In a presentation at the 2009 Almond Industry Conference, researcher Jim Adaskaveg, University of California-Riverside, described the new products and each fits in the management of foliar diseases.

Some of the products may not be registered in time for the 2010 season. Check with a crop protection professional.

The new products are PhD, a polyoxin and a reduced-risk fungicide; Inspire and Quash, sterol inhibitors with a single-site mode of action; Luna Privilege, a carboximide with a single-site mode of action; and the natural products Regalia, Actinovate, and Cerebrocide.
