delaro logoThe Environmental Protection Agency has registered Delaro fungicide, a premix of two products, from Bayer CropScience for use on soybeans and corn. It is registered in most states except for Utah, California and Alaska.

The premix contains the active ingredients prothioconazole and trifloxystrobin, Fungicide Resistance Action Committee Groups 3 and 11, respectively, according to the product label.

It provides broad-spectrum control of frogeye leafspot, brown spot, aerial blight and white mold in soybeans, according to a news release.

Delaro moves both inside and outside the plant, according to Bayer. It diffuses in and on the waxy cuticle of the plant surface. It also expands across the plant’s exterior by moving via surface moisture, such as dew.

Within the plant, the fungicide is transported through plant tissue, according to company literature.
