Benefits of Lance

  • Lance differs from most other fungicides in both its mode and site of action.
  • Lance is a Group 7 fungicide which works by starving the fungi of oxygen.
  • It utilizes this effective mode of action against a range of target diseases.
  • Even diseases which have developed resistance to other chemical classes of fungicides can be controlled by Lance.

When to apply

  • Lance provides optimal disease control when used in a preventative spray program and not for use in response to an existing disease outbreak.
  • Application should be timed to provide the greatest possible protection during the complete flowering stage.
  • Proper timing is crucial to getting the most out of your fungicide application.
  • Research shows that there is no effective way to control most diseases once symptoms appear.


Canola

  • To protect your canola from Sclerotinia stem rot, apply Lance at 20 - 50% flowering.1
  • Apply a second time 7 - 14 days later up to 50% bloom if disease persists or weather conditions are favourable for disease development.


Dry Beans

  • Apply Lance at 20 - 50% flowering to control white mould in dry beans.
  • Apply a second time 7 - 14 days later if disease persists or weather conditions are favourable for disease development. Use the higher rate to obtain extended protection and maximum yield benefit.


Lentils

  • Apply Lance at the beginning of flowering and make a second application 7 - 14 days later if the disease persists.


Potatoes

  • Apply preventatively from tuber initiation through bulking.

1 To control sclerotinia stem rot and suppress alternaria black spot. Apply at late flowering to early green pod to control alternaria black spot.

Mixing Instructions

  1. Ensure the spray tank is clean before use. Follow the clean-out recommendations stated on the label of the product that was previously used.
  2. Fill the spray tank one-half full of water and start agitation.
  3. Add the required amount of Lance to the tank.
  4. Continue agitation while filling the remainder of the spray tank.
  5. After use, clean the spray tank according to label directions.


Ground Application

  1. Apply Lance when conditions are favourable for the development of disease.
  2. Use a minimum water volume of 100 L/ha and ensure thorough coverage of foliage.
  3. Consult nozzle manufacturer's recommendation for spray pressures for specific nozzles.


Aerial Application

  1. Apply when conditions are favourable for the development of disease.
  2. Use a minimum water volume of 40 L/ha.
  3. Ensure thorough coverage of foliage.

 

 

FAQ

What are the scouting tips to detect sclerotinia?

  • Around mid-June before flowering, look for apothecia (golf-tee shaped mushroom structures) under the canopy. Spores are shot in the air and can move locally and in nearby fields. If you find signs of sclerotinia, it’s already too late. This is why consistent scouting and fungicide timing is so important.
  • Weather; cool moist periods increase risk. At around 10-11am walk through in a w-pattern. The bottom of your pants will be wet from dew showing moisture.
  • Risk also increases with these factors:
    • Number of susceptible crops planted in 3-4 years rotation
    • Density of canopy; healthy vigorous crop have higher risk
  • Fungicide prevention:
    • At the 20-30% bloom stage (15-20 open pods) it’s ideal to ly a fungicide.
    • Make sure to continue monitoring highest yielding areas.

What is the ideal temperature for storing fungicides and what is the freezing point?

The ideal temperature for storing fungicides is above the freezing point at 0°C. See page 228 in the Agricultural Solutions Guide.

When is the best time to apply Fungicide on my crop?

Nexicor® fungicide should be applied early at the 2 to 6 leaf stage.  Lance® and Cotegra® fungicides should be applied at the 20-50% flowering stage.

What are the best practices for storing fungicides?

  1. Store the leftover product in original tightly closed container. Protect from freezing.
  2. DO NOT ship or store the product near food, feed, seed and fertilizers.
  3. Store the product in a cool, dry, locked, well-ventilated area without a floor drain.

Where can I find the tank cleaning recommendations?

Tank clean out recommendations can be found on the product label.

What are the differences between Cotegra®, Lance and Nexicor® fungicides?

Each fungicide has one or more unique mode(s) of action, controls a different disease(s) and is applied at specific crop staging.

 

Nexicor fungicide controls blackleg and contains three active ingredients, including Group 3,7 and 11. It can be applied early at the 2 to 6 leaf stage.

 

Lance fungicide contains a Group 7 active ingredient and controls alternaria black spot and sclerotinia. Cotegra fungicide contains Group 7 and 3 active ingredients and controls sclerotinia in canola. Both of these fungicides can be applied at the 20-50% flowering stage.

Are there any registered follow crops for Cotegra, Lance and Nexicor fungicides?

No, there are no registered follow crops for Cotegra, Lance and Nexicor fungicides.

What is the correct mixing order? (tank mixes with herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, surfactants)

Mixing order for Lance fungicide:

  1. Fill the spray tank 1/2 full of water and start agitation.
  2. Add the required amount of Lance fungicide to the tank.
  3. If tank mixing, add the required amount of the tank-mix partner.
  4. Continue agitation while filling the remainder of the spray tank.
  5. After use, clean the spray tank according to label precautions.

What are the application tips for using Lance fungicide?

Lance fungicide:

  1. Rainfastness is 2 hours.
  2. It should be applied preventively, prior to the onset of disease.
  3. Application should be avoided when heavy rain is forecasted.
  4. Lance should be applied when conditions are favourable for disease development.

What are the recommended water volumes and application rates for fungicides?

For aerial applications, the recommended water volume for all fungicides is 20 L/ac (5 gal/c). For ground applications with Lance or Nexicor fungicides, the recommended water volume is 40 L/ac (10 gal/c). Whereas for ground application with Cotegra fungicide, the recommended water volume is 40 to 80 L/ac (10 to 20 g/ac). Higher water volume is recommended for optimal coverage.
