Online Pesticide License Recertification Seminar Series: Fungicides 101
September 23 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Fungicides 101 – Making the Most of Your Conventional or Organic Fungicide Programs, 11:00-12:00, Speaker: Lindsey du Toit
Whether you grow crops conventionally or organically, are you getting the most out of your fungicide programs? If your crop has a root disease, will you get any benefit from applying a fungicide to the plants or to the soil? When should you make your application(s)? How often? What method of fungicide application will give you the best control of the diseases you are trying to manage? Should you use a sticker or adjuvant with your application? Does it matter what volume of water (GPA) you use to make the application? Does it matter what nozzles and pressure you use? Is the disease you’re concerned about caused by a true fungus or a water mold? Why does that even matter? Can you cure a crop of an infection after you see symptoms of the disease? What does FRAC mean, and why should you care? If a fungicide label says the product is ‘systemic’, will the fungicide move throughout the plant to provide protection against pathogens? Do fungicides really control all the diseases listed on the labels? This seminar will cover the basics of using organic and conventional fungicides, including the many factors to consider so you can get the best results from your fungicide applications, whether you use certified organic fungicides or conventional fungicides.
