Fusarium in Wheat
Strachila… “I've heard of guys in the last couple of years, starting to use Prosaro® as their preventative measures on almost every irrigated acre that they advise for, because the Fusarium disease is really prevalent in fields after a corn crop. So if a wheat crop is being grown after a corn crop, the chances are pretty high that Fusarium is present in the field, and a head scab outbreak in the field can completely decimate a crop.
But, Strachila says, timing is of the utmost importance for efficacy.
Strachila… “Prosaro® works best when it's correctly timed around early flowering. Feekes 10.51 if we want to get really specific. If you apply it before flowering occurs, it's a little bit too early. And if it's applied after pollination, it's a little bit too late.”
