Looking to gain an edge on Soybean Sudden Death Syndrome and White Mold going into 2019?
For less than $4/ac your seed dealer can provide enhanced protection against SDS and White Mold, only with Heads Up Plant Protectant.
Heads Up® is an EPA registered biological seed treatment that offers broad spectrum disease protection against soybean diseases such as White Mold (Sclerotinia sclerotiorum), Sudden Death Syndrome (Fusarium virguliforme) and Rhizoctonia (Rhizoctonia solani).
Non-fungicidal, Heads Up® utilizes systemic acquired resistance, or S.A.R., as a new mode of action which works to trigger key crop defense pathways upon germination. By eliciting known defense pathways prior to disease infection, Heads Up® works with the variety to kick-start varietal resistance for a systemic, season long effect.
“White mould usually comes in July or August, so it was hard to imagine it would be effective. It turned out to have a significant effect, possibly due to a phenomenon known as resistance priming. You can prime the plant to use its own natural resistance to the disease. It’s a different way of poking at the problem.”
