FUNGICIDES:

More Money in Your Pocket

A Critical Component for Proficient Disease Management

Smart investing is about examining risk and reward. The larger the investment, the more important it is to manage risk factors and help that investment pay off. For high-value wheat and barley crops, two potentially devastating risk factors are leaf and head diseases. That’s why growers choose Prosaro™ fungicide with its two highly effective active ingredients for powerful activity against a broad spectrum of leaf and head diseases. Prosaro fungicide from Bayer CropScience helps manage shifting disease threats, protecting yield and quality. Prosaro spreads throughout treated healthy and diseased tissue, halting leaf diseases, like rust, tan spot, powdery mildew and Septoria, at

the time of application. Residual action protects upper and lower leaf surfaces, stopping new infections from attacking the crop. Prosaro also provides powerful protection against Fusarium head blight, commonly called scab. Scab not only reduces yield but also threatens grain quality by reducing kernel size and producing DON (deoxynivalenol or vomitoxin), a mycotoxin that causes feed refusal in livestock and other issues in quality standards and functionality of grain headed for further processing.

Prosaro has been proven to consistently reduce mycotoxin production by 50 to 60 percent. In years of heavy scab pressure, this level of reduction could actually mean rescuing the marketability of a crop. In years of lighter disease pressures, it can make a marked improvement in yield and secure premiums for top quality grain. Simply put, by keeping disease out of your field, Prosaro puts more money in your pocket.

Yield (bu/acre)

In winter wheat trials, a single application of Prosaro (6.5 floz/A) from flag leaf to flowering provided an average yield increase of 7.44 bu/A compared to the untreated.

Proactive disease management is essential for profitable cereal production. Each year in North America, modest disease pressures cause an average of 11.3 percent yield loss in field crops – and that’s in a ‘normal’ season. PROTECT YIELD Yield decreases with each and every cereal grain that does not develop fully. Head diseases and lesions on the flag leaf affect development of those kernels. Keeping plants green and healthy results in a better yielding crop. With timely application, Prosaro stops present leaf diseases, prevents future outbreaks and protects the head from scab and other diseases to ensure maximum grain fill.

REDUCE RISK Even if disease pressures seem minor at optimum application time, you don’t know what’s coming. Fungicides are a smart risk management tool to protect crops from both leaf and head diseases – no matter what weather comes your way. Proactive use of fungicides preserves yield and quality potential. And that goes a long way to stabilizing farm incomes year over year. PROTECT QUALITY Preserving grain quality means better grades, prices, profitability and marketability. It starts with protecting cereal heads from infections, discoloration, lower kernel weights, shriveled kernels and mycotoxin contamination.

PROTECT PROFITABILITY Used proactively in conjunction with other crop management tools, fungicides are essential to realize the full yield and quality potential of crops. Prosaro protects not only yield and quality but also the earlier investments made in seed, fertilizer, machinery and labor. To maximize your return on investment and increase profitability, you need a proficient disease management strategy. Prosaro fungicide can be a critical part of building a complete and sound program.
