Manage Disease in Pulse Crops in All Conditions

Manage Disease in Pulse Crops in All Conditions

With the drought conditions in 2017 compared to the warm and wet conditions of 2016, and hot and dry temperatures in 2015, Mother Nature has offered those who grow pulses a variety of conditions to contend with. While no two seasons have been the same, on average there are ROI benefits to a pulse fungicide application in both dry and wet years.

Three years of Bayer fungicide trials prove that under a variety of growing conditions, you can realize a higher yield with a Delaro fungicide application. Delaro provides protection against disease and keeps plants healthier longer – allowing them to maximize their yield potential.

Application Timing

Preventive control is critical for diseases like mycosphaerella blight in field peas; ascochyta blight in field peas, lentils and chickpeas; anthracnose in lentils; and white mould in chickpeas, field peas, lentils and soybeans – some of the most common, yield robbing diseases in pulse crops today. A fungicide should be applied at first flower, prior to canopy closure or when initial signs of the disease appear.

Delaro fungicide provides broad-spectrum disease control of all major pulse diseases on the Prairies. Its dual mode of action provides both preventive and post-infection activity.
