Foliar Health Center: South/West

Comprehensive Foliar Health Strategies

Every bushel matters. Increasing return on input investment calls for foliar health strategies that guard yield potential, with emphasis on both disease and insect control.

This resource center provides quick information on strategies to control key plant diseases that can hurt foliar health and reduce yield. You’ll find tips for scouting, details on risk factors and best practices for fungicide selection and application.

Insects can take a bite out of yield and their damage opens the door for disease. Check here for tips on insect control and the impact on foliar health, too.

Choosing the Right Fungicide

Fungicides are not the same. Be aware of performance differences between the available active ingredients. Look for these product characteristics to maximize return on fungicide investment:

  • Broad-spectrum control of key fungal diseases
  • Curative, preventive, eradicant and antisporulant activity
  • Proven action against fungicide-resistant strains of frogeye leaf spot
  • Movement within the plant to protect existing leaves, stems, emerging leaves and pods.
  • Residual protection that lasts 21 days
  • Enhanced foliar health and photosynthesis under a range of conditions
  • Excellent crop safety that won’t set back soybean plant growth or reduce photosynthesis

Comprehensive Foliar Health Protection

A foliar health program from DuPont offers:

  • Control of both foliar and soil-borne fungal diseases for healthier-looking crops and higher yield potential
  • Consistent insect protection to control tough pests
  • Excellent protection from production-limiting diseases
  • Enhanced health benefits for the plant including increased leaf area and higher chlorophyll index to keep leaves greener longer

DuPont Crop Protection offers a portfolio of fungicides to fit your operation’s needs.

  • DuPont Aproach® Prima fungicide combines two premier fungicides for enhanced disease protection against hard-to-control diseases, including strobilurin-resistant frogeye leaf spot
