Priaxor Xemium Use Webinar - April 1 or 8

23 Mar 2021 3:55 PM | Alla Kostenko (Administrator)

Priaxor® Xemium brand fungicide is a translaminar (localized leaf systemic) fungicide that is being sought by the Hawaii Coffee Growers Association for approval of use on coffee grown in Hawaii from the Hawaii Department of Agriculture (HDOA), BASF (manufacturer), and EPA under a Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) Section 18  Emergency Exemption. If approved and used properly, Priaxor has the ability to kill coffee leaf rust within coffee plant leaves, unlike currently approved contact fungicides that kill CLR spores on the outside of the leaf.

​In anticipation of a Section 18 approval for Priaxor, outreach and educational opportunities have been prepared for producers. During these webinars, HDOA staff will explain about Priaxor and its use requirements and answer any  questions. These events are free, hosted by the HDOA and University of Hawaii CTAHR, and open to all. We encourage you to join us.
