About this Product

Early-season protection that is as gentle as it is effective

To successfully manage cereal leaf and stem diseases, Tilt® fungicide is registered for application at two different growth stages in wheat and barley: early-season herbicide timing and flag leaf timing. If disease is present at herbicide timing, apply Tilt along with a registered or supported herbicide tank mix partner.

Early-season disease protection
Applying Tilt at herbicide timing provides excellent early-season disease protection and consistent crop safety with all registered and supported herbicides. Should disease be evident at the early stages of crop growth, producers can now treat the disease before it becomes a problem. Syngenta research found that Tilt applied with a herbicide provided a yield increase of 6% in wheat and 8% in barley compared to the untreated checks. This was due to the protection from further spread of cereal leaf diseases. At herbicide timing, Tilt offers disease suppression for about 7–10 days.


Product Benefits

  • Can be applied at two different growth stages to manage cereal leaf and stem diseases in wheat and barley
  • Consistently crop safe with all registered and supported herbicides
  • Stops disease progression


Each case contains 2 x 8 L (1/2 rate: 160 ac; full rate: 80 ac)

Application Information

Use Rates

Apply at 100-200 mL/ac for spring wheat, durum, winter wheat and barley.

Herbicide timing:
An early application of the 1/2 rate (100 mL/ac) can be timed with herbicide application for early-season disease suppression under normal field conditions for cereals and barley.  However, if there is a history of high disease pressure in the field and/or if conditions favour disease development, use the full rate.

Refer to the label for a complete list of crops and rates.

Ground: 20 gal/ac or 200 L/ha
Air: 5 gal/ac or 50 L/ha

Application Method

Aerial, Ground

Application Information

Application Notes:

  • Apply as a preventative disease control measure
  • Apply at the very early stages of leaf disease, which could occur anytime between tillering and stem elongation (typically, an application from the beginning of stem elongation up to flag leaf emergence is required)
  • The second application is usually applied at head emergence and, in most cases is essential to control the Septoria disease complex

Mixing Order

  1. Fill tank ½ full with clean water. Engage gentle agitation.
  2. Add the required amount of Tilt and agitate thoroughly.
  3. Continue filling the tank with water until it is 9/10 full and, if applicable, add a tank mix partner.
  4. Complete filling the tank with water, maintaining agitation throughout mixing and spraying.

Use Restrictions

Application: No more than two applications per season

Re-cropping: No restrictions

Storage: Avoid freezing


  • 3 day grazing interval
  • Straw from cereals can be fed to livestock, if no herbicide tank mix was applied


1 hour

Tank Mixes

Tilt can be tank mixed with just one of the following herbicides in wheat and barley only:

  • 2,4-D Amine
  • Axial® herbicide
  • Broadband® herbicide
  • Buctril® M herbicide
  • Horizon NG herbicide (wheat only)
  • Pardner® herbicide
  • MCPA Amine

Note: See labels for individual tank mix precautions and staging

Tilt may be applied with up to 9 lb/ac (4 kg/ac) of actual nitrogen. The appropriate amount of urea can be dissolved in water and added to the spray tank before adding the fungicide. Do not add nitrogen while tank mixing with a herbicide.

Technical Information

Chemistry Group

Group 3 fungicide

Mode of Action

Tilt contains 250 g/L of propiconazole, a sterol biosynthesis inhibitor. It has preventive activity and early curative activity, and is primarily active on mycelium with some anti-sporulant activity. However, it has no activity on spore germination.

Tilt works on leaf surfaces first, where it penetrates and protects the plant from disease. As Tilt dries on the leaf surface, it creates a protective barrier against disease. In addition to superior leaf-surface protection, Tilt penetrates and translocates, preventing disease development throughout the plant.

Uptake and Movement in Plants:

  • Readily absorbed by green plant tissue
  • Moves across the leaf (translaminar movement)
  • Moves up into the contacted leaf (acropetal movement)

Resistance Management

For resistance management, please note that Tilt contains a Group 3 fungicide. Any fungal population may contain individuals naturally resistant to Tilt and other Group 3 fungicides. A gradual or total loss of pest control may occur over time if these fungicides are used repeatedly in the same fields. Other resistance mechanisms that are not linked to site of action but specific for individual chemicals, such as enhanced metabolism, may also exist. Appropriate resistance management strategies should be followed.
