Last fall, the fungicide Quadris (azoxystrobin) received a supplemental registration for use on corn. This fungicide has performed very well against rust and gray leaf spot in ISU trials. The label specifies a 7-day preharvest interval, which will allow for more flexible application schedules than have been possible with Tilt. Quadris will be available for use this season. For more details, see your Syngenta representative or contact me.
