Two applications of fungicide in cereals pay off with quality and yield

Two applications of fungicide in cereals pay off with quality and yield

Cereal acres are up considerably, in part due to an early soybean harvest and a dry fall last year in much of Eastern Canada. Therefore, it will be more important than ever to consider a preventative fungicide application for leaf disease and Fusarium head blight (FHB) this coming season.

Cereal disease specialists advise that there are three important application timings for fungicides: 1) early applications at the herbicide timing; 2) flag leaf timing to control leaf diseases, and; 3) at heading for protection against FHB which negatively affects grade.
