Fungicide opinion


Arable Farmer
i am from Bulgaria and i was using middle class fungicides from bayer. This year i want to use upper class fungicides. But there is some questions. I am between elatus era form syngenta and aviator xpro and this year also offered me ascra xpro. I was using T2 with zantara bixafen 50g/l ; tebuconazole 166 g/l with 1,25l/ha. The problem is the price of the top products. Are they making any difference on the crop. Also in my region nobody uses such expensive products. And whats going to happen if i make tank mixture with different products for example to achieve product like aviator or elatus are they going to be the same?


In wheat, without a doubt, the best and most persistent is ELATUS ERA. In Spain this year it costs around 50 euros / liter, but with half a liter it is already 90% effective in yellow and brown rust. This year BASF has released a new one called REVYSTAR which must be very good too, but there are no farmer experiences. It is good to mix products with different modes of action.

ELATUS delays drying, which here in Spain is sometimes too fast.
A curious thing that I have appreciated this past year is that my stubbles that due to excess rain in autumn could not be worked, in February, from afar, showed a whiter color than those that, supposedly, did not apply this fungicide . In other words, the effect was extremely long-lasting in the crop remains, since the fungi that the humidity of winter creates in the residues seemed scarce
