Integrated Pest Management Options

Seed Treatment

Early-season septoria control may reduce the risk of later infection. However, if the flag leaf is disease-free at the time of head emergence, a fungicide will not likely be necessary.

Active ingredient difenoconazole + metalaxyl-M
Trade name Dividend XL RTA
Rate (product) 650 mL per 100 kg seed
Comments Provides control for the first 6 weeks after planting. For full-season control, apply a foliar fungicide. For both commercial seed treatment plants and on-farm treatment using standard gravity flow- or mist-type seed treatment equipment. May also be used in treat-on-the-go seeder. Do not graze, feed green forage or cut for hay within 55 days of planting.
