About this Product

For Cereals: Let your flag leaf fly

Stand up for healthy yields with Quilt®. By applying Quilt fungicide at the flag-leaf stage, you protect your cereal crop from leaf diseases that reduce your yield and quality. Cereal crops treated with Quilt are protected against rusts, tan spot, net blotch, powdery mildew and Septoria. Registered on all wheat and barley, as well as oats, Quilt safeguards your investment and your profitability.

For Corn: Early disease protection pays
Quilt fungicide applied in the Q-Zone (5-8 leaf stage) protects corn from diseases and can boost yields by up to 6 bushels per acre (2012-2013 Syngenta field scale research trials in Ontario and Quebec).

Please see this page for Quilt use in canola.

Please see this page for Quilt use in pulses.

Quilt is also labelled for use on blueberries – see technical bulletin and disease management guide for additional details.

Product Benefits

  • Quilt moves within the plant and is distributed within the leaves, protecting the plant as it grows, as opposed to protecting only the points of contact.
  • Long lasting, broad-spectrum foliar and stem disease protection
  • Exceptional crop safety
  • Registered for aerial application
  • Systemic activity that works preventatively
  • Two modes of action for resistance management

Packaging

  • Each case contains  2 x 10.125 L jugs
  • 101.25 L drums (Western Canada only)
  • 405 L totes

Water Volume

Cereals:  10 gal/ac (Ground)
Corn: 15 gal/ac (Ground)
Aerial Application: 5.4 gal/ac.
Ensure thorough spray coverage of all foliage and canopy penetration for optimum control.

Application Method

Aerial, Ground

Application Information

Good spray coverage and canopy penetration is essential when applying Quilt. Use rates and timing for Quilt differ by crop. Please see the label for complete details.

Cereals:

  • Apply once between stem elongation and half-head emergence
  • When disease pressure from stripe rust and wheat leaf rust is expected to be high, the high rate should be used
  • Use the high rate for barley leaf rust
  • No more than one application per season

Corn

  • Apply Quilt early at the 5-8 leaf stage to protect corn from diseases at a critical growing time and boost yields
  • Apply Quilt at tassel to control late season diseases
  • No more than 2 applications per season

Mixing Order

  1. Add 1/2 to 2/3 of the required amount of water to the spray tank. Begin agitation and continue through mixing and spraying.
  2. Add the required amount of Quilt.
  3. If applicable, add Matador® insecticide.
  4. Finish filling tank with the correct amount of water.

    Note: Prepare no more spray mixture than what is required for the immediate operation.

Use Restrictions

Cereals:

  • DO NOT make more than two applications per season.
  • DO NOT apply within 45 days of harvest for grain and straw (45 day PHI).
  • DO NOT make more than one application for forage and hay.
  • DO NOT harvest within 30 days for forage and hay (30 day PHI)

Rotational Crop Restrictions: 

  • All crops with Azoxystrobin/Propiconazole registered uses: 0 days
  • All other crops Intended for Food and Feed: 105 days
  • Oats and rye: 45 days

Use Restrictions – General

  • Quilt is extremely phytotoxic to certain apple varieties, so take extreme care to avoid spraying Quilt where spray drift may reach apple trees. Do not use sprayers that have contained Quilt to subsequently spray apple orchards.

Please refer the label for re-cropping, pre-harvest intervals and other use restrictions.

Mode of Action

Quilt contains two proven fungicides, both of which have systemic properties and each of which has a different mode of action. Quilt fungicide is a mixture of Quadris® (azoxystrobin) and Tilt® (propiconazole) fungicides.

Azoxystrobin is xylem mobile, meaning it uses the plant's own feeding system to move up and out through new growth. It has single-site activity, meaning it attacks fungal pathogens at a specific biological point for quick, effective control.

Propiconazole is a translaminar fungicide, meaning it moves vertically through plant tissue with some lateral movement. A droplet landing on a leaf surface, for example, will move directly downward through to the underside of the leaf. It has multi-site activity, attacking pathogens at many biological points, which is key to reducing the risk of resistance.

Together, these fungicides attack fungal pathogens at every stage of development, from spore germination to mycelial growth to sporulation, which means they work not only to suppress the initial infection, but also to prevent subsequent infection as spores try to spread. This action preserves green leaf area, giving plants an opportunity to continue to photosynthesize and direct energy into quality and yield.

Quilt works both preventatively and curatively to protect crops against yield and quality robbing diseases in cereals, corn and pulses, including soybeans.
