Wheat Heading and Fungicide Timing

042913_2028_HaveILostAn2We are starting to see heads emerging in the more advanced wheat fields in the area.  If you are considering fungicide, I have attached a staging chart below.  Caramba and Prosaro provide the best control when applied in the Day 2-5 range.  Applying either before or after this window will still provide excellent leaf disease protection, but will not optimize fusarium control.  The rate for Prosaro is 0.324L/ac (20 ac per 6.5L jug) and the rate for Caramba is 0.4L/ac (20 ac per 8L jug).  No surfactant is necessary.   If you have any questions, call your Veritas agronomy team
