New Sclerotina Control Tools for Canola Crops

The incidence of sclerotina in canola is greatly influenced by weather so management practices are crucial to handle this disease. Two new options are available for 2014.

Genetic resistance to Sclerotina

 Just like cereal crops utilize genetic resistance to protect against rust, septoria, leaf blotch, tan spot etc, Pioneer has breed in genetic sclerotina resistance into 3 hybrid canola varieties 45S52, 46S53 and 45S54.  This trait covers the whole window of flowering unlike a single pass of a fungicide. An in-plant trait provides coverage regardless of weather patterns throughout the entire growing season.  Reduction in incidence is greater than 50%.  Should heavy pressure occur a fungicide combination with genetic resistance hybrids delivers unparalleled sclerotina strategies.

 

New Fungicide for Sclerotina

In December 2013, DuPont received Approval for the use of Acapela® on Canola for the control of Sclerotinia. Acapela is a unique Strobiluron fungicide from group 11. Acapela field scale trials versus the #1 market leader, Acapela produced +1.1 bushel more per acre at an attractive price point.  Acapela provides superior coverage through excellent xylem systemic movement. Acapela innovation helps deliver healthier crops and higher yield potential.
