At ADAMA, we listen and learn from farmers. That’s how we craft innovative solutions that not only deliver exceptional performance but also provide added convenience for farmers.
Consider our latest fungicide solution MAXENTIS® which offers long-lasting, dual-mode protection and higher yields in an easy-to-use advanced formulated mix. Or DAVAI A PLUS™ and DAVAI® Q PLUS, both are packaged with grass control at the precise rate for 40 acres per case. So there’s no need for you to calculate rates – we’ve done the planning for you — just grab a box and spray.
According to the Saskatchewan Pulse Growers, anthracnose, the most common lentil disease in Saskatchewan, affected 74% of surveyed fields in 2018 and 92% in 2019.
By the end of the 2019 season, it was confirmed that insensitivity to Group 11 strobilurin fungicides had developed in Saskatchewan. With the risk of fungicide insensitivity rising in Canada, it's important to use a mix of strategies to manage diseases effectively.
Consider these strategies to keep anthracnose disease under control:
When using fungicides, be sure to work with your retailer or agronomist to ensure a proper treatment plan to minimize the risk of developing fungicide insensitivity.
See research that proves MAXENTIS’ effectiveness in controlling Group 11 insensitive anthracnose in lentils.
To maximize yield and earnings, pay attention to the critical period of weed control (CPWC). During this time, you will want to keep the crop weed free to avoid losing more than 5% of the yield.
For peas, the CPWC is usually up to one or two weeks after crop emergence.
Research studies conducted at Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) showed no decline in pea yields when weeds were removed one week after pea emergence and only a 7% decline after two weeks. However, there was a 12% decline when weed removal happened after three weeks and there was a significant 26% decline after four weeks.Source: Harker et al. 1998
It’s crucial to remove weeds, but it’s also important to spray herbicides early to avoid weed competition. The Saskatchewan Pulse Growers reported that studies in northeast Alberta and the Peace River region showed that spraying at the two-node stage instead of the eight-node stage led to higher pea yields. When sprayed early, the yield increased from 22% to 125% in seven out of 10 times.
When it comes to lentils, studies found that lentils have a CPWC at the start of the five-node stage to the 10-node stage. Additional studies found that applying IMI-herbicides on lentils at the six-node stage led to a 30% higher yield than the two-node stage. For optimal results apply IMI-herbicides such as DAVAI® Q PLUS during the five-to six-node stage.
We’ve heard half of prairie farmers are unhappy with bundle options. If you feel like crop input bundles and programs are restricting your choices and forcing you to buy from only select companies, rather than having the freedom to shop where you want, you’re not alone. Thankfully, ADAMA offers a wide range of innovative solutions and exceptional alternatives for Canadian pulse growers.
From in-crop to disease control, ADAMA has a full suite of innovative solutions to protect the yield potential of your peas all season long.
