Apples to Blueberries, Caneberries to Stone Fruits, Count on DuPont to Help Protect Your Fruit Crop
Our high-quality fungicides, insecticides and herbicides protect your fruit crops from yield and quality losses caused by diseases, insects and weeds.
As fruit growers aim to produce the healthiest and safest food possible, a constantly shifting spectrum of production risks is always there. But the work of crop protection innovation continues. At DuPont, global collaboration today is yielding big ideas for fruit crops.
DuPont is hard at work on global collaboration in search of innovation. In recent years, we brought to market DuPont™ Altacor® insecticide, powered by DuPont™ Rynaxypyr®, for broad-spectrum, multi-stage control of key pests in many fruit and nut crops. Now, we’re pleased to introduce DuPont™ Fontelis® fungicide, which has recently received registration on apples, blueberries, stone fruits and many other fruiting crops.
Growers look to DuPont fungicides, insecticides and herbicides to safeguard the integrity of their fruit crops and the economic and environmental sustainability of their businesses.
