For fusarium yes it is. Carambola is comparable but folicur is not. If you are
Just going for leaf disease then use something cheaper.
X4 except it's Caramba that is similar, learned what Carambola - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia is though. Gotta love spell checker.:D

I actually thought Prosaro would be cheaper than Caramba, especially after programming. Maybe price check a bit. It is the best product for fusarium and disease at heading according to my trials.;)

Just done Spraying my wheat with Prosaro today. Making good quality wheat is a big challenge here in quebec. too much moisture all the time. My wheat received a stratego shot with the Buctril M earlier in the season, Folicur 10 days ago and Prosaro today. Fortunately, wheat is looking good, we are hoping 5 T / Ha

I think caramba or prosaro is pretty close. If you use a lot of basf, price point is very similar. But if youre using proline too, better off to use bayer program. It should be pointed out that you should alternate products each year. So if you are doing cereal on cereal, don't use caramba if you used twinline previous year for example. Or if you did on flag leaf that year. I usually seed my wheat into oat stubble for example, and if I used twinline I would use prosaro. If on canola stubble and used proline, caramba better choice. But I may be a bit over concerned with that.

No, it's a good thing to be aware of this because fungi reproductive cycle is a lot faster than weeds so resistance can come quicker. But don't they almost use most of all the same active ingredients? Never do cereals twice in a row in my rotation so never really checked this out but always been told to not use fungicide in my soybeans if I go cereals after if I want to use fungicide in cereals...

Caramba or prosaro was better off your trials for scab in spring wheat?
Sorry I was somewhat unclear on that.

I did fungicide trials for a few years and of course yield was the main factor but we also tested infection levels(vomitoxin I believe it is referred to???). I would have to go digging for the exact numbers but Prosaro was slightly better every time on both yield and vom levels. The difference was minor though. Carumba is a good product but my choice is Prosaro.;)

I used Caramba this year over Prosaro. I didn't like it.

Main reasons are that the amount of product you have to handle are doubled and the Caramba burned my wheat some where I overlapped. Plus your insecticide options are limited with Caramba due to the leaf burning issue

Recent article in Western Producer suggested fungicide on Durum wheat may be worse for grades than not spraying. Here Bow Island a study showed no economic gain when spraying fungicide on irrigated wheat for fursarium head blight. Make a person wonder what to do.

Thanks for this good information nicemustang! It was funny, my dad went to a syngenta day last week and they were telling him you can spray them on corn after on soybean the following year and on cereal the year after in the same field and it didn't matter since all these products were different groups...

Suppose to trust those so called specialists I guess.... :-(
