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
