R&D reports: Efficacy of Ambitious for controlling Psa on mature Hayward
24 July 2015

Additional research to determine the efficacy of Ambitious for controlling Psa on mature Hayward vines is now available on the R&D section of the KVH website.

Ambitious currently holds a limited label claim for the control of Psa in kiwifruit. An application to ACVM for a full label claim will be made this season. Work is still needed to better understand the mode of action of this product.
