Velum Rise nematicide/fungicide

Velum® Rise is a broad spectrum nematicide/fungicide for in-furrow application in potatoes that delivers systemic and preventative protection against crop diseases and nematodes.

A co-formulation of fluopyram and penflufen, Velum Rise provides excellent control of soil-borne black scurf, stem and stolon canker caused by Rhizoctonia solani, as well as provides suppression of early blight, black dot and plant pathogenic nematodes.

Application Tips

For soil applications (in-furrow) using ground equipment in potatoes:


  • Apply as an in-furrow spray in 40 to 150 L/ha of water at planting
  • For best results, mount the spray nozzle to direct the spray as a 15-20 cm band onto the seed pieces in the furrow just before the seed is covered
  • Best control of soil-borne and seed-borne Rhizoctonia solani is obtained if the in-furrow treatment with Velum Rise is preceded by a seed-piece treatment with Emesto Silver or Emesto Complete seed-piece treatments at registered rates

Packaging


  • 8.1 L jugs (2 jugs/case)
  • 1 L/ha (404 mL/ac.); OR
  • 9 mL/100 m of row (based on 90 cm row spacing)
  • One jug treats 20 ac.

Crop Restrictions


  • Do not replant to alfalfa for 14 days after application
  • Potatoes and other tuberous and corm vegetables, sugarbeets, crops of crop groups 3-07 (bulb vegetables), 6 (legume vegetables, succulent or dried), 15 (cereal grains) and 20 (oilseeds) may be rotated anytime following the last application of Velum Rise
  • All other crops may be replanted 30 days following the last application of Velum Rise

Application Rates


Protection Against Rate Timing
POTATO

Control of:

  • Soil-borne black scurf
  • Stem and stolon canker caused by Rhizoctonia solani
1 L/ha (404 mL/ac.); or 9 ml/100 m of row (based on 90 cm row spacing)

Suppression of:

  • Early blight 
  • Black dot

Maximum seasonal application rates:

Fluopyram: Do not apply more than 500 g/ha (202 g/ac.) fluopyram per year, regardless of formulation or method of application (soil or foliar)

Apply as an in-furrow spray in 40 to 150 L/ha of water at planting

Suppression of plant pathogenic nematodes:

  • Root lesion nematodes
  • Root knot nematodes
  • Potato cyst nematodes (including pale cyst and golden nematode

Penflufen: Do not apply more than 160 g/ha (65 g/ac.) penflufen per year, regardless of formulation or method of application (seed-piece treatment or in-furrow)

For best results, mount the spray nozzle to direct the spray as a 15-20 cm band onto the seed pieces in the furrow just before the seed is covered 

Resistance

To limit the potential for development of disease resistance to this fungicide class do not make more than 2 sequential applications of any Group 7-containing fungicide before rotating with a fungicide from a different Group registered for the same use. When Velum Rise is applied as a soil application use a non-Group 7 product such as Scala® fungicide for the first foliar fungicide application.



Maximum seasonal application rates:



Fluopyram: Do not apply more than 500 g/ha (202 g/ac.) fluopyram per year, regardless of formulation or method of application (soil or foliar).

Penflufen: Do not apply more than 160 g/ha (65 g/ac.) penflufen per year, regardless of formulation or method of application (seed-piece treatment or in-furrow).



Any nematode or fungal population may contain individuals naturally resistant to Velum Rise and other Group 7 nematicides/fungicides. A gradual or total loss of nematode control may occur over time if this product is used repeatedly in the same field. Other resistance mechanisms that are not linked to site of action, but specific for individual chemicals, such as enhanced metabolism, may also exist. Appropriate resistance-management strategies should be followed. To delay nematicide/fungicide resistance:



  • Where possible, rotate the use of Velum Rise or other Group 7 nematicides/fungicides with different Groups that control the same pests
  • When Velum Rise is applied as a soil application use another mode of action for the first foliar fungicide application. Scala fungicide (Group 9) is an excellent choice for the first foliar fungicide application.
  • Avoid consecutive applications of Velum Rise or other Group 3 or Group 7 nematicides/fungicides in a season. Alternate applications with fungicides having a different mode of action.
  • Nematicide/fungicide use should be based on an integrated disease management program that includes scouting, historical information related to pesticide use and crop rotation and considers host plant resistance, impact of environmental conditions on disease development, disease thresholds, as well as cultural, biological and other chemical control practices
  • Early blight pressure should be monitored throughout the growing season. Heavy disease pressure may require additional systemic foliar fungicide applications.
  • Monitor treated nematode populations for resistance development
  • Contact your local extension specialist or certified crop advisors for any additional pesticide resistance-management and/or IPM recommendations for the specific site and pest problems in your area
