1st fungicide spray, 1st choice for growers

Early 1st fungicide spray of Proline 275 will be vital for the control of Phoma and light leaf spot this autumn. Proline 275 is the only field-proven product available that controls both Phoma and light leaf spot (LLS) – so all you have to do to get your OSR fungicide programme off to the best possible start is to simply spray Proline 275 as your 1st fungicide.

Protective Proline
Getting on top of Phoma and LLS early is critical for avoiding damaging crop losses and making sure you aren’t chasing disease in the spring.
  • Treat Phoma with 0.32 L/ha Proline275 when the 10-20% plants affected threshold is reached
  • If the Phoma threshold isn’t reached then look to apply 0.46 L/ha Proline275 by mid-November for LLS control.
Productive Proline

Trials have shown that using Proline275 to achieve good control of Phoma and LLS in the autumn can result in an increase in final yields.

  • Choosing a product that has activity against both diseases is vital to provide the extra protection the plant needs to produce higher yields.
  • Phoma and LLS cause the greatest yield loss to UK OSR crops according to the DEFRA OSR disease survey.
