Fluensulfone Crop Safety – 2017

Research Summary Abstract

Fluensulfone was registered as Nimitz Pro G in the United States in 2016 for nematode control in turf. Between 2012 and 2014, the IR-4 Project completed 13 trials on 8 ornamental horticulture plant species or genera examining phytotoxicity related to soil drench applications of fluensulfone (MCW-2 480EC). In these trials, one genus (Petunia sp.) exhibited minimal or no injury after drench applications. Based on this information, it is recommended that this genus be added to the list of tolerant plants on a future fluensulfone label for uses on ornamental horticulture crops.
