Uses

  • Dry beans (including lupins and dry faba beans)
  • Dry peas
  • Chickpeas
  • Lentils

For management of

Dry Beans (including lupins and dry faba beans)

  • Seed rot/pre- and post-emergent damping-off caused by Fusarium spp., Pythium spp. and Rhizoctonia spp.
  • Seedling blight caused by Pythium spp.
  • Seed-borne anthracnose caused by Colletotrichum spp.

Chickpeas

  • *Seed-borne Ascochyta blight caused by Ascochyta rabiei
  • Seed rot/pre- and post-emergent damping-off caused by Fusarium spp., Pythium spp. and Rhizoctonia spp.
  • Seedling blight caused by Fusarium spp. and Pythium spp.
  • Seed rot and seedling blight caused by seed-borne Botrytis spp.

Lentils

  • *Seed-borne Ascochyta blight caused by Ascochyta lentis
  • Seed rot/pre- and post-emergent damping-off and seedling blight caused by Fusarium spp., Pythium spp. and Rhizoctonia spp.
  • Seedling root rot caused by Fusarium spp.
  • Seedling blight caused by seed-borne Botrytis spp.

Dry Peas

  • *Seed-borne Ascochyta blight and foot root caused by Ascochyta pinodes
  • Seed rot/pre- and post emergent damping-off and seedling blight caused by Fusarium spp., Pythium spp. and Rhizoctonia spp.
     

*Ascochyta-infected seed is an important vehicle for moving the disease into new areas of the field due the ability of the pathogen to readily transmit from the infected seed to seedlings. Apron Advance will minimize the growth of fungus on the seed and prevent the movement of fungus in the field. Apron Advance is an important tool in an integrated approach to ascochyta management in pulse crops.

Application Information

Apron Advance is a seed treatment formulation for use in commercial seed treatment plants, and for on-farm treatment using auger treating only; do not use in hopper box or seed drill. The equipment must provide uniform coverage of Apron Advance.  Uneven seed coverage may not give the desired level of disease control. Allow the seed to dry before bagging, storing or seeding.

  2. Maintain constant agitation of the slurry during the treatment.
