How Stamina® F4 Cereals Fungicide Seed Treatment Works

Stamina F4 Cereals fungicide is the first seed treatment that includes the active ingredient, Xemium® brand fungicide. Xemium brand fungicide adds unique plant mobility and translocation to ensure the fungicide spreads throughout the entire plant, from roots to shoots. This systemic disease protection delivers control above and below ground, and allows for extended residual disease control. It also contains the active ingredient F500® fungicide, which works with Xemium fungicide to deliver protection in the earliest development stages, which leads to improved stress and cold tolerance and more rapid emergence, the foundations for healthier crops and better yield potential.

Designed with an easy-to-use formulation for on-farm or commercial application, Stamina F4 Cereals fungicide works on wheat, barley, oats, triticale and rye. It provides broad-spectrum control on a wide range of diseases, including: seed rot and seedling blight; Rhizocotnia root rot; common root rot; dry seed decay; covered smut; flag smut; false and true loose smut; and covered smut and suppression of Fusarium crown rot and root rot.

Always read and follow label directions.

NAFB Trade Talk 2012: MANA’s Incognito targets white mold

We spoke with MANA Product Manager Dave Downing at the National Association of Farm Broadcasting Convention about the prevalence of white mold in fields.

He says that is is important for producers to look out for the conditions that white mold prevails in, especially if we have a mild winter.


For producers concerned about their situation, Downing says MANA’s Incognito will really manage white mold disease.


Downing recommends using Incognito for prevention of the disease.


He says growers in the Dakotas are having good results with the product. And with current commodity prices at their current levels, Downing says many are using it as a preventative measure.


Downing says that it is best for producers to go to their dealer to learn more about Incognito, but you can also go to MANA’s website or check out their white mold website for more information on treating the disease.
