Application Rate and Mixing Guidelines

Rate

Prosaro PRO 0.303 L/ac. = 20 ac./jug
NIS at 0.125% vol/vol

Water Volumes

Ground – minimum of 10 US gal./ac. (100 L/ha.)
Aerial – minimum of 5 US gal./ac. (50 L/ha.)

Rainfastness

One hour after application

Tank Mixing Order

  • Add one-half of the required amount of water to the mix tank and start agitation
  • Add the required quantity of Prosaro PRO to the water and complete filling with water to the required total volume
  • Maintain agitation throughout mixing
  • Prosaro PRO is recommended to be used with a registered non-ionic surfactant (NIS), such as Agral® 90 or Ag Surf®, at 0.125% vol/vol. Prosaro PRO should be thoroughly mixed prior to the addition of a NIS. Add the NIS into the tank last after Prosaro PRO and water have been mixed into solution.

When to Apply

Barley: For suppression of fusarium head blight, apply Prosaro PRO as a preventative application from when at least 70% to 100% of the barley stem heads are fully emerged, to 3 days after full head emergence. Application at this timing will also control for leaf disease.

Wheat: For suppression of fusarium head blight, apply Prosaro PRO as a preventative application 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. Application at this timing will also control for leaf disease.

How to Manage Resistance?

It is in everyone’s best interest to preserve the fungicide tools we currently have available to avoid the situation we have with herbicide resistance. It should be noted that there are fundamental differences between herbicide resistance and fungicide resistance. The following three factors need to be considered when assessing if a field is at risk for developing resistance. Assessing your resistance risk includes evaluating the combination of the fungicide mode of action (MOA), the pathogen and the specific farming practices being used.

Evaluating the Risk of Fungicide Resistance

Reports of fungicide resistance in cereal crops are fairly rare in North America. The main pathogens of concern for Canadian growers are all classified as low risk, including such diseases as fusarium and rusts. Additionally, agronomic and environmental conditions, which strongly influence resistance risk in Canadian provinces, are regarded as low.
