Corteva Agriscience and Brevant® seeds are committed to providing the latest seed technology and crop protection solutions that help you maximize your yield. Brevant seeds soybeans are tested across Eastern Canada and offer the latest technology, solid agronomics and high yield potential. Pair them with Acapela™ fungicide to provide complete coverage and superior protection against key diseases like white mould.
White mould, caused by the fungus Sclerotinia sclerotiorum can cause a significant yield reduction in soybeans so it is important to take a multi-pronged proactive approach to manage this disease.
White mould is an annual, reoccurring problem in Eastern Canada. Cool and moist conditions in July coincide with soybean flowering and are ideal for disease development. The conditions in the soybean canopy are more important to disease development than general climatic conditions. Dense plant canopies can be more disease-prone than more open canopies.
To ensure your Brevant seeds soybeans are protected from white mould consider the following practices:
Fungicide use for White Mould Management: Despite the use of cultural practices to limit the incidence, white mould may still develop. Foliar application of a fungicide, like Acapela will provide reliable protection against white mould. For the best protection, apply a fungicide preventatively prior to white mould infecting the senescing flowers.
Acapela is a proven fungicide for soybeans that provides control against white mould. Acapela moves easily in the plant ensuring great coverage and consistent protection, providing outstanding disease control for greener, healthier crops and higher yield potential. Disease protection depends on both application timing and coverage. For white mould, an initial preventative application at beginning bloom and follow with 2nd application 7-10 days later if needed. Be sure to follow label directions. Consult your local retailer or our product guide for more information.
When you add it all up, pairing Brevant seeds soybeans with Acapela is the perfect disease management strategy for farmers, providing the complete coverage and superior protection you need to deliver healthier crops and lock in high yields this growing season.
