Prosaro East

Overview


Rely on Prosaro® fungicide, Canada’s #1 cereal fungicide to make the grade. Trust the proven performer with the broadest spectrum of leaf disease control and fusarium head blight activity for improved yield and quality. Combined with its post-infection and protective properties, Prosaro makes a visit to the elevator about as automatic as it gets.

Prosaro is the most effective fungicide for suppressing FHB (scab) in wheat and barley, and reducing mycotoxin levels in the grain, while stopping all the major yield-robbing leaf diseases.

  • When applied at early flowering of the wheat head and just after head emergence in barley, Prosaro protects the florets from FHB infection through the grain fill period while also supplying post infection activity on leaf diseases.
  • Effectively reduces levels of DON and other fungal mycotoxins in the harvested grain, which present a significant health risk to humans and can cause feed refusal.
  • Outstanding curative and protective activity against foliar diseases: leaf rust, stem rust, septoria leaf and glume blotch, tan spot and net blotch.
  • Delivers higher yield and improved quality: plump kernels with high test weight, more bushels and less risk of dockage.

Application Tips

Overview



  • Apply Prosaro when the peak number of florets is in the open, exposed stage to reduce the number of scabby kernels, lower DON levels, and to achieve plumper grains and higher test weights.
  • For fusarium head blight (FHB) suppression, coverage of the heads is essential – best results are achieved using a configuration with forward/backward nozzles such as using alternating turbo floodjets or double swivel turbo teejet nozzles.

Application Timing
  • For control of leaf and stem diseases, apply Prosaro from the late vegetative stage (flag leaf fully emerged to awn emergence) to the end of the flowering stage (commonly referred to as T3 timing by Bayer) 
  • For optimum protection against FHB without compromising leaf disease control:
Barley Scout fields for T3 (Z59, Day 0), when the head is just clearing the ligule. Aim to apply at Z 60, Day +2, when 70 to 100% of the main stem barley heads are fully emerged to 3 days after full head emergence.

Wheat Scout fields for T3 (Z 59, Day 0) when the head is just clearing the ligule. Aim to apply at Z 60, Day +2, the beginning of pollination (when anthers are visible only in middle of head).
