    Iprodione Re-evaluation

    March 21, 2016
    On March 17, 2016. Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) published their proposed re-evaluation decision regarding iprodione found here:
    http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/cps-spc/pest/part/consultations/_prvd2016-09/index-eng.php


    The evaluation contains specific language about iprodione uses in various crop systems, and proposes the complete cancellation of uses of the active ingredient throughout Canada including uses on turfgrass.

    Bayer is committed to providing safe, effective solutions to the turf industry and continues to stand by our science. Bayer is currently reviewing the document to better understand PMRA’s position.

    Pending PMRA’s final re-evaluation decision, we will continue to offer iprodione-based solutions (Trilogy Stressgard and Interface Stressgard) and turfgrasas managers/Agents can continue to purchase, sell and use iprodione-based products. 

    Bayer will respond to the PMRA as part of the public comment period. As such, we will also partner with Canadian turfgrass industry associations regarding the importance of iprodione in the marketplace and any developments moving forward.

    Thank you for your continued support of Bayer

    Best regards,


    William MacMurdo

    Director Environmental Science - Canada
