13 Thiram 75 WP on Peas Powder-inferior and dusty formulation Inexpensive Effective on Pythium, Ascochyta and Fusarium seed rot and seedling blight. Weak on RhizoctoniaCompatible with Nodulator Liquid (4 hr) and Peat (<4 hr)
14 Rhizobia and Seed Treatments Granular Rhizobia products have no restrictions on seed treatments and often produce higher yields especially under drier soil spring conditionsPeat rhizobia for peas and lentils perform better for nodulation than liquidsCheck with Rhizobia manufacturer on any restrictionsAvoid tank mixing seed treatment and Rhizobia
15 Rhizobia Compatibility with Vitaflo on Pea Pea –Nodulator or So-Fast PeatVitaflo applied first and dried then Rhizobia second- 4-6 hours for plantingVitaflo applied and simultaneous Peat Rhizobia applied- 2 hours window for plantingLiquid are not recommended. Peat Rhizobia generally are more durable and produce more nodules than liquidsNo restrictions with Peat or Clay Granulars

17 CROWN ON LENTILSProvides superior control of Ascochyta compared to Apron Maxx RTA even when Crown applied at the low rate of 300 mL per 100 kgCrown is also labeled to control seed borne Botrytis, Fusarium and Rhizoctonia of lentilPythium is minor pest on lentils so Crown can be applied alone

26 Comparison of Disease Control of Apron Maxx RTA to Crown+ Allegiance on Chickpea PythiumControlAscochytaSuperiorControl?
27 CROWN ON CHICKPEASMust be applied with Allegiance (metalaxyl) or Apron XL to chickpeas for Pythium Control. This is a requirement to obtain coverage for Crop Insurance in Saskatchewan (90 % plant losses from Pythium on Kabuli Chickpeas is common).Provides superior control of Ascochyta compared to Apron Maxx RTA even when Crown applied at the low label rate of 300 mL per 100 kgAscochyta can completely wipe out chickpea crop. To obtain crop insurance in Saskatchewan, seed level infection has to be at trace levels (Crown treated seed can be evaluated by lab).

29 Trilex Al for Ascochyta Control on Chickpeas Ascochyta resistance is widespread to Group 11 fungicides. Trilex Al would be ineffective against these strainsCrown is the only product that provides a high level of control of ascochyta of chickpeasHave ascochyta on seed, Crown is the only choice!!
