Vertisan® Fungicide: A Higher Standard of Sunflower Protection
DuPont™ Vertisan® fungicide is the disease protection solution sunflower growers have been waiting for. Why? First, it’s an entirely new technology for protecting the crop against sclerotinia head rot and rust. Second, Vertisan® also gives sunflower growers a much-needed new option to manage resistance.
Vertisan® is the next-generation SDHI Group 7 fungicide that stops disease in its tracks with multiple modes of powerful action. It delivers translaminar movement, meaning it moves across the leaf, and locally systemic movement, meaning it moves through the leaf.
The unique, highly potent active ingredient of Vertisan®, penthiopyrad, locks tightly at the site of disease action. Vertisan® protects the entire plant, safeguarding your sunflowers straight through to harvest.
With its preventative and residual action, the use of Vertisan® on sunflowers has been shown by research to increase yields by up to 75% compared to untreated checks.
Apply Vertisan® at 0.7L/acre to sunflowers before disease development (early flower at R5.1 to R5.2) and again 7 to 14 days later.
