Crop diseases, including those that affect pulses, can develop quickly if conditions are ripe. Add to that that fungicide products are nearly all protective and not curative, and timing and application becomes crucial to effective use of the products.
In this SoundCloud interview, Debra Murphy, Saskatchewan field editor for RealAgriculture.com, asks Glendy Clezy and Todd Friday, with DuPont Crop Protection, to share their thoughts on maximizing fungicide effectiveness. Clezy discusses timing and nozzle selection, as well as covers the all-important topic of resistance management. Friday talks crop staging and reminds farmers that beginning the scouting season very early offers the best chance of lining up the ideal time frame to spray.
