Consultation on Fosetyl-aluminum and Its Associated End-use Products, Proposed Re-evaluation Decision PRVD2017-19

This consultation is now closed.

Fosetyl-aluminum (fosetyl-Al) is a fungicide that is registered for commercial use only, to control fungal diseases on food and feed crops, ornamentals, and turf. End-use products include Signature XTRA Stressgard and Aliette products (as found in the pesticides label search). Following a scheduled re-evaluation under the Re-evaluation Program, the Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) is consulting Canadians on proposed changes to the way fosetyl-Al can be used, to further protect health and the environment.

Risks of concern were identified for people who work with and around fosetyl-Al, resulting in the proposal to cancel uses on cut flowers and drench application to bedding plants. Additional protective measures are proposed for some of the remaining uses, including longer wait times to re-enter treated areas. Updated advisory statements and spray buffer zones are proposed to further protect the environment.

For more information on the proposed decision open the “Proposed Re-evaluation Decision”.
