The wait is over.
Blackleg, caused by the fungus Leptosphaeria maculans is the most serious disease of canola in Australia that has caused substantial yield loss across the country. Current seed treatments haven’t been up to the task of effective management it due to resistance pressure – until now.
ILeVO is a highly effective and safe new seed treatment that is now registered for use in Australia and has a number of benefits:
- Alternative MOA - highly effective on blackleg including those strains resistant to Azoles. No known cross-resistance and better control.
- Lower application rate than Jockey® Stayer® - increases efficiency of operation.
- Good crop safety - no hypocotyl shortening and better crop establishment.
- Wide range of compatibilities - mix with other fungicidal and insecticidal seed treatments for broader protection of seed-borne, soil-borne and foliar disease.
With ILeVO, growers can get on the front foot of blackleg.
ILeVO contains the systematic ingredient Fluopyram, which has translocat\es to the roots, cotyledons and first true leaves of canola plants. ILeVO’s high concentration in these areas that blackleg first attacks effectively manages early infection and infestation, which potentially helps reduce upper canopy infection in later stages of the crop.
By managing blackleg in its earliest stages, ILeVO assists crops to reach their yield potential while demonstrating good crop safety with no hypocotyl shortening or effect on seed germination. It also has a high range of compatibilities with the ability to mix with other fungicidal and insecticidal seed treatments for broader crop protection.
