No. 3 Article 6/April 13, 2007

Field Crop Fungicide Update

Three new fungicides have been registered since the 2006 growing season:

Several section 18 emergency use exemptions have been approved to allow use of many foliar fungicides on soybean in Illinois for protection against soybean rust. Those approved are listed here; additional fungicides may be approved as we get into the season.

For the past several years, section 18 emergency exemptions have been available to use Folicur fungicide for control of Fusarium head blight (scab) of wheat in Illinois. This has been requested again for the 2007 season, but as of April 11, U.S. EPA had not yet made a decision on this request.--Carl A. Bradley
