As the canola starts to bolt and the wheat is getting to the flag leaf stage, the timing for Stress Reliever technology (in C3, P3 and Nutri-Boost) has passed. For application with fungicide, the best product choices for crops that are water stressed are:

Canola – Extreme Water Stress Conditions – Standing Water or Waterlogged Soils

Crop Stage Product Combination Rate (L/Ac) Cost ($/ac)
Bolting and Later uPtake 5-25-5
AND SuperB
2
1/3
$12.00
$2.20
Necrotic Foliar Nutrition NOT Recommended under these conditions

Cereals – Extreme Water Stress Conditions – Standing Water or Waterlogged Soils

Crop Stage Product Combination Rate (L/Ac) Cost ($/ac)
Flag Leaf and Later uPtake 5-25-5
AND SuperB
2
1/3
$12.00
$2.20
Necrotic Foliar Nutrition NOT Recommended under these conditions

*SuperB – is recommended a Healer/Sealer for stressed and damaged crops
*uPtake 5-25-5 is compatible with most fungicides.
*Necrotic – dead plant material, will not survive.

Water stressed crops show purpling & yellowing, reduced metabolism and delayed maturity. Growers who are determined to push their crop through this stress are to salvage yield potential, quality and maturity.

Kin-GRO, a registered PGR product, in combination with foliar nutrition will suppress ethylene production and senescence at these stages.

Speak with an OMEX Plant Health Professional with details of the crop type, crop staging, visual stress symptoms of the crop etc. to determine the best foliar product to apply to the water stressed crops.
