The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) has before it an application from Nufarm Australia Limited to extend the use of Nufarm Filan Fungicide containing 500 g/kg boscalid as the active constituent. The applicant proposes to include use on potatoes, tomatoes, capsicum, eggplant and peppers to control Early blight (Alternaria solani).
Nufarm Filan Fungicide will be applied to the vegetable crops in conjunction with Nufarm Polyram DF Fungicide Spray containing 700 g/kg metiram (Product number 58901). The Nufarm Polyram DF Fungicide Spray uses are not considered here as the product is currently registered for use on potatoes and tomatoes at the required rate. Label extension of Nufarm Polyram DF Fungicide Spray on capsicum, eggplant and peppers is subject to a separate submission.
