Flowers Canada Growers announced the recent registration of Altus Insecticide (flupyradifurone) for greenhouse and outdoor ornamental uses. Altus can be used against Aphids and Whiteflies as a foliar spray and Aphids, Whiteflies and Leafhoppers as a drench application.
FCG would like to thank Bayer Environmental Science for their support as well as Health Canada for their work bringing this product to ornamental farmers.
Please review the label carefully before using this product. The presently approved label is available HERE.
FCG would also like to caution farmers applying products via drench application to ensure that their irrigation systems do not allow the escape of ANY effluent as this is not permitted and could result in penalties through the compliance division of Health Canada.
