Within the last few years, EPA approved pesticide labels for a few foliar fungicide products for use in alfalfa production. However, university research regarding potential economic benefits of these products are extremely limited. In addition, aggressive salesmanship recommending multiple applications per season raises concerns with proper stewardship for these products to insure long-term effectiveness.
