Fungicide Emergency Use Permit issued for Pulse crops
An Emergency Use Permit has been issued by the APVMA for the use of AMISTAR XTRA in Chickpea and Lentil crops.
The permit, for the control of Ascochyta Blight, is in force from 2nd June 2017 to 30th November 2017 and is held by Pulse Australia Limited.
It is predicted that there will be a high prevalence of Ascochyta Blight this season. Due to the incidence of Ascochyta Blight in chickpea crops last year across Queensland and northern NSW, large amounts of the disease inoculum will likely infect this year’s crop.
According to NSW DPI, Ascochyta has already been found in multiple QLD chickpea crops.
