The Environmental Protection Agency and California Department of Pesticide Regulation have registered Mettle 125 ME fungicide from Morrisville, N.C.-based Isagro USA for use on strawberries.

EPA and CDPR registered it in 2009 for use on grapes to control powdery mildew and black rot, according to company literature.

The fungicide, which contains the active ingredient tetraconazole, is a sterol biosynthesis inhibitor and targets powdery mildew, according to a news release.

It belongs to the Fungicide Resistance Action Committee Group 3.

Mettle is a micro-emulsion formulation, giving it faster leaf penetration and rainfastness in two hours, according to company literature.
