Benefits

Unique movement properties

Translaminar movement drawing on chalkboard

Four movement properties quickly and efficiently surround, penetrate and protect the leaf and stem to prevent infection on the entire plant, leading to more consistent performance and higher yield potential.

More complete coverage

Rapid uptake drawing on chalkboard

Rapid absorption moves Acapela quickly into and within each plant, allowing application to occur even when field conditions are challenging.

Unique action

Corn field and sky

Picoxystrobin is an advanced Group 11, strobilurin fungicide. Acapela is the only Group 11 fungicide product that provides reliable protection against sclerotinia rot (white mould).

Diseases Controlled and Application Information

1 Suppression

Soybeans

Diseases: Asian soybean rust,  Brown spot (Septoria) , Frogeye leafspot (Cercospora sojina)

Rates: 0.18 to 0.35 L/ac (0.44 to 0.88 L/ha)

Application Information: Begin applications prior to disease development and continue on a 7 to 14 day interval. Use higher rate and shorter interval when disease pressure is high.

For foliar diseases, the optimal time for application is typically at the R2 to R3 growth stage (full bloom to beginning pod).

 

Diseases: Sclerotinia stem rot1 (white mould)

Rates: 0.35 L/ac (0.88 L/ha)

Application Information: For white mould, make initial preventative application at R1 to R2 (beginning to full bloom) and follow up with 2nd application 7 to 10 days later.

Corn (Field, Sweet, Seed, Popcorn)

Diseases: Northern corn leaf blight

Rates: 0.21 to 0.32 L/ac  (0.53 to 0.8 L/ha)

Application Information: Begin applications prior to disease development and continue on a 7 to 14 day interval. Use higher rate and shorter interval when disease pressure is high.  For optimal disease control, apply at full tassel (VT) to milk stage (R3) corn.

Cereals (Barley, Oats, Rye, Triticale, Wheat, Flax)

Diseases: Crown rust (oats), Leaf rust (wheat, rye and triticale), Net blotch (barley), Powdery mildew Scald (barley and rye), Septoria leaf blotch (wheat, rye, barley and triticale), Stripe rust (cereal grains), Tan spot (wheat), Pasmo (flax)

Rate: 0.18 to 0.35 L/ac (0.44 to 0.88 L/ha)

Application Information: Begin applications prior to disease development and continue on a 7 to 14 day interval. Use higher rate and shorter interval when disease pressure is high.

To optimize yields in cereals, it is important to protect the flag leaf from foliar diseases. For optimizing yield and flag leaf disease control, apply Acapela™ at Feeke’s 9, ‘flag leaf out’.

Do not apply after flowering (Feekes 10.5).

Application Information: Begin applications prior to disease development and continue on a 7 to 14 day interval. Use higher rate and shorter interval when disease pressure is high.

 

Diseases: Sclerotinia rot1 (white mould)

Rates: 0.35 L/ac (0.88 L/ha)
