Proline East

Overview

Like any good grower, you know when you’ve got a job to do, you better do it right. So, it only makes sense that growers everywhere are trusting Proline to lower DON levels, control late season leaf diseases and maximize their corn yield. It’s also the 1 choice for sclerotinia control in canola in Canada. Go for gold with Proline.

In 2014, the Grain Corn Ear Mould and Vomitoxin Survey carried out by Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) to determine ear mould incidence and the occurrence of mycotoxins in the grain, showed that high DON concentrations (>5.0 PPM) was closely associated with ears that had Western Bean Cutworm (WBC) feeding.

Remember to scout for WBC as feeding damage fosters the development of ear moulds and toxins. If damage is evident applying an insecticide at early silking and tank-mixing it with Proline will protect your crop from late season leaf diseases, lower DON levels and maximize your crop’s yield.

Application Tips

Trusted Protection With Proline



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:

Western Canada 4-Year Canola Results

Canola demonstration strip trial (DST) results show that Proline offers, on average, greater than 8% yield gain over the untreated check.

All fungicide applications outperformed the untreated check under high sclerotinia pressure, but Proline led the way with a 7.1 bu/ac. yield increase.

Corn Protection



Proline is the only fungicide registered to suppress fusarium & gibberella ear rot and stalk rot pathogens. Because of its activity on ear rot, Proline effectively reduces DON levels. All this plus late season disease control means higher yields at harvest.

Apply from the development stage of corn between silking and silk browning. Scout for Day 0 (early R1) when the first silks are present out the husk.

 

Timing
Wheat Timing of application is critical. For optimum protection against Fusarium head blight, apply from when at least 75% of the wheat heads on the main stem are fully emerged to when 50%of the heads on the main stem are in flower
Barley Unlike wheat, which flowers after it has completely headed, barley begins to flower in the boot. While the disease can infect the barley head prior to total head emergence, it is important to wait until most of the barley heads have emerged to attain maximum coverage. Applying Proline at this time will protect the exposed florets from the risk of infection. Delaying application past head emergence will reduce protection and increase the risk of disease infection
Canola The goal when applying Proline is to protect as many canola flower petals as possible, prior to significant petal drop. The optimum timing is between 20 and 30% bloom. Application with Proline fungicide can occuf from 20 - 50% bloom. To accurately identify the bloom stage of your crop, follow these steps: 1. Find the main stem. 2. Pull off the secondary branches. 3. Count only the open flowers on the main stem including aborted flowers and newly formed pods. 4. Sample several plants across the field.
Soybeans R 1-R 5 (R 2-R 3 or at onset of pod formation is optimal).

For all other crops consult the label.
