New fungicide for corn and cereals
By Top Crop Manager
May 12, 2016, Ontario – BASF has received registration of Headline AMP, a new fungicide that delivers enhanced disease control and unique benefits of AgCelence for corn and cereal growers. Headline AMP is now available for the 2016 growing season in Ontario and Quebec.
Headline AMP controls key diseases in corn including Northern corn leaf blight, grey leaf spot, eye spot and common rust, according to a press release. Northern corn leaf blight emerges as one of the most economically impactful disease problems, and corn seed genetics are often not a sufficient solution in many growing acres of Ontario and Quebec. In cereals, diseases controlled include septoria, spot blotch and powdery mildew.
Combining two active ingredients, Headline AMP provides corn and cereal growers with multiple modes of action for reduced risk of developing fungicide resistance. Headline is registered as a class three product in Ontario and therefore does not need an aerial permit prior to application.
