My supplier recently told me that Benlate had been taken off the market
here in Australia also. I have tried Fongarid, but it seems unable to
control Botrytis, which in my opinion limits its usefulness with CP's.
I have recently been trialing Mancozeb, which is effective against
Botrytis, and is listed as a Benlate substitute.
