If a grower intends to apply one fungicide application per year and flag leaf disease levels are low to moderate Bayer CropScience recommends waiting and applying at the head timing. Applying at head timing will protect against various leaf and head diseases including fusarium head blight (FHB), and subsequently maximize both quality and quantity of your yield.
Targeting the middle stage (shown below) will most often deliver the best results but Bayer CropScience research has indicated that even if you apply slightly earlier or later a positive ROI is still observed. Remember an application at head timing can supply both flag leaf protection with the added benefit of head protection throughout the grain fill period.
