Costing canola growers an average 10% yield loss, or more depending on the severity of infection, sclerotinia can wreak havoc on growers' bottom lines. With this much to lose, you can count on the number one brand choice of canola growers in Canada – Proline® fungicide. More growers use Proline for reliable control of sclerotinia than any other canola fungicide. Simply apply a timely application to your canola between 20 to 50% bloom stage and you've effectively reduced infection rates by up to 80%.
Take a closer look at how Proline reduces sclerotinia infection:
Canola demonstration strip trial (DST) results over 5 years show that Proline will deliver an average yield increase of +3.8 bu./ac over the untreated check. In a high disease pressure situation that yield increase jumps to +6.6 bu./ac.
Both fungicide applications outperformed the untreated check, but Proline led the way under high disease pressure with a 6.2% yield increase.
Sclerotinia can wreak havoc on your bottom line. Even more alarming? Sclerotinia can remain relatively undetected for long periods of time and once it becomes visible – it’s already too late.
Sclerotinia infection in canola occurs primarily at flowering from air-borne ascospores which infect blossoms during periods of extended wetness.
Infection can result in:
The loss of crop by this disease is often overlooked. The economic implication of sclerotinia is significant when you do the math.
