Mr. Mosko said that what appeared to be good suppression of diseases
in early studies wasn't always borne out in subsequent trials. While
there was perhaps significant suppression of a given disease, it
might not have been comparable to known conventional controls, so
Engelhard made the decision to not pursue label registration for
disease control. (Keep planting disease resistant cultivars!)
Nevertheless, insect control does appear excellent as indicated in my
earlier post. Another difficult pest to control, pear psylla, is
apparently easily managed with Surround (tm) sprays.
Mosko did confirm that there will only be limited regional sales this
year. Also, the company does not yet have printed informational or
promotional literature on Surround (tm); however, if you would like
to get on a list to receive such literature when available you can
email John at <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
I will be putting together what information I have (and can get my
hands on) at ATTRA for distribution to ATTRA callers
(1-800-346-9140). In the meantime, the February issue of American
Fruit Grower has an article on particle film technology.
