Options With Short Supply Of Chlorothalonil

What do we do with peanuts and the short supply of Bravo/chlorothalonil? Here are some good options from UGA Extension Pathologist Dr. Bob Kemerait:

  1.  Replace 1.5 pt/A chlorothalonil with 15 fl oz/A Elast.
  2.  Replace 1.5 pt/A chlorothalonil with 10 fl oz/A Topsin/thiophanate methyl, but ONLY one time!
  3.  Replace 1.5 pt/A chlorothanil with 7.0 fl oz/A Stratego (concern about resistance management…)
  4.  Replace 1.5 pt/A chlorothalonil with 3.5 fl oz/A Absolute (concern about resistance management…)
  5.  Replace 1.5 pt/A chlorothalonil with 5.5 fl oz/A Alto (better to mix 1.0 pt/A chlorothalonil with 5.5 fl oz/A Alto, or at least SOME chlorothalonil with the Alto!)
  6.  Replace 1.5 pt/A chlorothalonil with 5.5 fl oz/A Alto + 5 fl oz/A Topsin/thiophanate methyl.
  7.  Extend chlorothalonil with 1.0 pt/A chlorothalonil with 1.0 pt/A Kocide.
  8.  Extend chlorothalonil with 1.0 pt/A chlorothalonil with 5.0 fl oz/A Topsin/thiophanate methyl.
  9.  Extend chlorothalonil with 1.0 pt/A chlorothalonil with 2.0 fl oz/A propiconazole.

Common Corn Rust in Mitchell

First off this is NOT Southern Rust, so don’t worry. This disease is very similar but the kind of rust that causes significant yield loss. This disease is almost always found each year and rarely causes in yield loss and is of no worry to our corn producers.
