University of Arkansas plant pathologist Gene Milus recently sent out a message about being careful to not exceed the maximum amount of a fungicide applied to a crop in a single year. Such a consideration could be an issue where more than one fungicide application is made.

This is especially true if a generic of tebuconazole is applied, as this chemical also is in Prosaro; however, multiple applications of the same fungicide also may exceed the maximum amount of chemical that can be applied in a single year.

Reading the label is the best place to determine the maximum amount of a chemical that can be applied in a single season and the exact amount of a chemicals in a fungicide.

A quick reference to what chemicals are in the typical fungicides used on wheat in Oklahoma is in the OSU Current Report (CR-7668) Jeff Edwards, OSU Extension small grains specialist, and Bob Hunger, OSU Extension plant pathologist, recently updated at

  • Jeff Bedwell Consider safety of forage beforehand

    Drought conditions of the past three to four years and in particular the past eight months had hay/forage inventories at critically low levels. The most recent period ranked as the third-driest period in recorded history. Not unlike the farmers and ranchers of other times of drought, ag producers now have been very resourceful to not only replace hay supplies that have dwindled but also add much-needed revenue to farm income.

  • Right to Farm web 1.jpg Ag industry seeks right to farm

    The emerging battle could have lasting repercussions for the nation’s food supply and for the millions of people worldwide who depend on U.S. agricultural exports. It’s also possible the right-to-farm idea could sputter as a merely symbolic gesture that carries little practical effect beyond driving up voter turnout in local elections.
