Peanut Growers Have New Disease Control Tool

DuPont™ Aproach® Prima Fungicide Receives Registration

INDIANAPOLIS — Corteva Agriscience™, Agriculture Division of DowDuPont, announced it has received federal approval from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for the use of Aproach® Prima fungicide in peanuts in all states except California.

With two modes of action, Aproach® Prima offers peanut growers improved disease management, resulting in better crop quality and greater yield potential. Aproach® Prima is also currently labeled in corn, soybeans and wheat, providing growers with increased crop flexibility.

“Planting decisions are always changing based on weather, market conditions and crop rotations,” said Nick Dame, U.S. Product Manager Fungicides, Corteva Agriscience. “The addition of peanuts to the Aproach Prima label will allow southern growers the flexibility to purchase one product that can be used across a variety of southern crops.”

“Aproach Prima has proven performance as an excellent fungicide in corn and soybeans,” said Dame. By expanding the crops protected by Aproach Prima, growers will now also have an effective option managing early leaf spot (Cercospora arachidicola), late leaf spot (Cercosporidium personatum), rust (Puccinia arachidis) and web blotch (Phoma arachidicola) in peanuts.
