GOWAN USA ANNOUNCES METTLE 125 ME FUNGICIDE LABEL EXPANSION
Source: Gowan news release

Gowan USA announced today the Federally approved label expansion of METTLEŽ 125ME FUNGICIDE to include the crop groups fruiting vegetables and cucurbits.

These two new crop groups, combined with grapes and strawberries already on the label, will provide METTLE users with more utility for controlling powdery mildew, Alternaria, Cercospora, Septoria, Anthracnose, and other problematic diseases.

METTLE 125ME FUNGICIDE is based on the active ingredient tetraconazole, which belongs to the triazole class of chemistry and designated as a FRAC Group 3 site of action. Different from other triazole fungicides, METTLE is highly systemic and readily moves into new growth emerging after application. The highly systemic movement of METTLE is possible due to its unique chemical structure which creates balanced liposolubility for easy movement into treated plants, and balanced hydrosolubility for translocation throughout treated plants for disease protection of new growth.

Gowan USA Product Manager Chad Dyer said, "The new labeled uses of METTLE FUNGICIDE will give fruiting vegetable and cucurbit growers a new highly systemic tool for controlling powdery mildew, Alternaria, Cercospora, Septoria, Anthracnose, and other diseases."
