It’s nothing personal, Stratego fungicide, but it’s time for a sprucing up. Winter wheat and soybean growers should soon have access to Stratego Pro, says Allan Kaastra, with Bayer CropScience. The new formulation swaps out propiconazole with prothioconazole, and should be available for farmers to use by 2015, pending appropriate regulatory approvals.
Kaastra says Stratego Pro will be a good fit for winter wheat and soybean growers, especially for those battling increasing levels of white mould in soybeans.
In this video interview filmed at the recent Bayer CropScience Dead Weeds Tour, Bernard Tobin, Real Agriculture’s field editor, asks Kaastra how farmers may use this product somewhat differently than past products, ideal timing for winter wheat, which diseases it controls or suppresses and how many passes farmers can expect to make with the product.
