The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has granted a Section 3 label registration for use of Stratego® Fungicide on soybeans. Stratego is approved to control alternaria leaf spot, frogeye leaf spot, anthracnose, septoria brown spot, cercospora blight, pod and stem blight, rhizoctonia aerial blight, powdery mildew and Asian soybean rust.
Stratego is a fungicide premix of strobilurin and triazole chemistries that provide two different modes of action. In addition, the strobilurin component of the premix, trifloxystrobin, expresses unique leaf retention/redistribution properties. These properties provide improved leaf coverage and locked-in residual control against diseases. Working together, the premix inhibits spore germination on the plant surface and fungal growth within plant tissues.
