Take soybean disease control into overtime
A lot of hard work and long hours go into having a successful soybean crop. From planting decisions, to herbicide and fungicide applications, the decisions growers make during the season can help soybeans yield strong.
Fungicides create a protective layer against damaging fungi. According to the University of Wisconsin Extension, poor disease control can result from insufficient coverage, poor efficacy or resistance. For many, resistance to certain fungicide chemistries has become a rising concern.
To minimize the risk of resistance, researchers with The Ohio State University Extension recommend the following strategies:
- Practice integrated pest management practices: Scout fields for disease pressure and apply fungicides when the diseases are present or if there is a high risk for infection.
- Rotate fungicide mixtures: Use different modes of action to help reduce selection pressure.
- Follow label instructions: Carefully follow label instructions as some may limit applications due to product restrictions.
Trivapro™ fungicide combines three modes of action for the hardest-working, longest-lasting, broad-spectrum disease control on the market. The fungicide contains Solatenol®, a breakthrough SDHI, that is 10 times more potent than any other SDHI on the market. Trivapro offers a step-change in preventive and curative disease control with three distinctly different modes of action, which greatly minimizes the potential for resistance development to soybean diseases including soybean rust and powdery mildew.
This season, let Trivapro shoulder some of the work. Consider applying a fungicide, when necessary, to help maximize return on investment and ultimately help grow more soybeans.
