Section 18 for FireLine, FireWall and MycoShield

Thursday, January 18th, 2018 by tamara

Please see the attached letter from the EPA regarding the Section 18 emergency exemption for three bactericides. The letter allows growers to continue using FireLine, FireWall and MycoShield. Here is a statement from Commissioner Adam Putnam on the Section 18…

“We must continue to do everything we can to support our citrus industry, and I’m pleased to announce that the EPA has reissued its approval of oxytetracycline and streptomycin for treating citrus greening. While the citrus industry is in dire straits, the industry has always been resilient. It has persevered through challenging times before, and it will do so again. Florida’s farmers are among the toughest people I know. We’re going to continue to use every resource available not only to fight citrus greening, but also to rebound from Hurricane Irma.”

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Florida Citrus Mutual at 863.682.1111.
