Agribusiness: Proline granted peanut registration

Peanut growers plagued with Cylindrocladium black rot (CBR) have a new in-furrow tool to suppress this disease.

Bayer CropScience has received Environmental Protection Agency registration permitting in-furrow applications of Proline fungicide to peanuts in the 2009 season.

“Using Proline at-plant boosts your yield potential,” said Randy Myers, Proline product manager. “Suppressing CBR levels gives peanuts stronger pegs that retain more pods during harvest.”

Peanut growers can follow an at-plant Proline application with a Provost fungicide block program for even greater protection against CBR. In 27 university trials over multiple years with CBR pressure present, using an in-furrow application of Proline plus a Provost-block program increased yields by an average of more than 400 pounds per acre over using Provost alone.

“Diseases can lower peanut yield potential by literally hundreds or even thousands of pounds,” Myers said. “Using a fungicide such as Proline can give growers the opportunity to reclaim more peanuts and more profit.”
