New fungicide for pulses and soybeans in Western Canada

Oct. 6, 2014 - Bayer CropScience introduces Delaro, a new fungicide for pulses and soybeans to be released in Western Canada for the 2015 growing season.

Delaro is a broad-spectrum fungicide for peas, lentils, chickpeas and soybeans. According to a news release, it delivers long-lasting control of all major stem, pod and leaf diseases that challenge today's pulse and soybean growers, providing higher yields and improved quality. Through extensive field testing conducted across the prairies between 2011 and 2013, and under a wide range of disease pressures, Delaro applied on peas in 15 trials has delivered an average of 138 per cent yield improvement relative to the untreated check. When applied on lentils in 19 trials Delaro delivered an average 170 per cent yield improvement relative to the untreated check.

Delaro combines two highly dynamic and complementary active ingredients, prothioconazole (Group 3) and trifloxystrobin (Group 11) for dual modes of action offering long lasting disease protection.
