How do I manage the risk of disease resistance in my lentil field?

To manage disease resistance risk in your lentil field, BASF recommends growers use sustainable fungicide management practices such as: 

  • Longer rotation: at least 4 years between lentils
  • Limit Group 11-containing foliar fungicide products to one application per season 
  • If applying multiple fungicide applications in a year, apply the fungicide containing Group 11 first. 
  • If fungicides containing a Group 11 have shown a decrease in performance in a field, use a non-Group 11 fungicide registered for anthracnose such as Cotegra® fungicide
