Acapela™

Fungicide

Corteva Agriscience™ Acapela™ fungicide has one-of-a-kind movement properties that help provide complete coverage and superior protection to deliver healthier crops and higher yield potential.

 

 

Because white mould or sclerotinia can cause a significant yield reduction in both canola and soybeans, it is vital that growers take a proactive approach to managing the disease.

White Mould & Sclerotinia: Same Disease. Big Problem for Soybean and Canola Farmers

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

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

Unique action

canola flower

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