EPA approves use of Instill in hazelnuts

The EPA has approved the expanded crop uses of Instill, a bactericide and fungicide for hazelnut crops, developed by Sym-Agro. 

As a result of this approval, Instill is now registered for use on hazelnut, potato, sugar beet and coffee for the management of disease. Instill’s patented formulation allows safe absorption into treated plants, enabling the active ingredient, copper sulfate pentahydrate, to move into the plant quickly and be retained in the treated plant for up to 21 days of disease protection. 

Unlike other low dose coppers, Instill absorbs into the plant tissue (cuticle) and translocates within the plant. The result is a protective inside-out barrier for superior disease prevention and control that won’t wash off. 

Instill is a locally systemic FRAC “M01” fungicide and MRL exempt, helping high value export crop growers meet increasingly stringent standards. 

“This expanded registration means that more growers will be able to utilize Instill to control disease on their crops,” said Peter Bierma, president for Sym-Agro.
