Headline is an innovative, broad-spectrum fungicide that delivers a high level of disease control and plant health.

  • When your plants are not challenged by disease, they can divert more energy into yield. It provides premium protection of diseases in pulse crops.
  • Headline fungicide delivers a new level of disease control in lentils, field peas, canola, dry beans, corn, cereals, flax and potatoes.

How it Works

Unprecedented Control of Key Disease

  • The formulation and chemical properties of Headline fungicide allow it to bind tightly to the waxy cuticle when applied to the leaf’s upper surface.
  • The systemic properties also allow Headline to move through the leaf and control disease on the lower surface of the leaf.
  • This unique activity enables Headline to protect both sides of the leaf regardless of the side it is applied to, delivering dual-sided protection.
  • Once applied, Headline stops spore germination, preventing spores from infecting plant tissue.
  • By interfering with fungal cell respiration and the production of energy, Headline fungicide also causes fungi to stop growing and die.

Lentils

  • Ascochyta and Anthracnose can dramatically affect lentil yields and quality.
  • Headline delivers new levels of control for both Ascochyta and Anthracnose in lentils.

Field Peas

  • Pea yields and quality can be reduced by infections of Powdery Mildew or Mycosphaerella blight prior to harvest.
  • Headline provides premium protection from both diseases, increasing yield potential and harvestability.

Dry Beans 

  • The most common disease of dry beans is Sclerotinia.
  • However, diseases like Anthracnose and Rust are causing yield and quality issues for many growers.
  • Headline is the only product registered for control of Anthracnose and Rust in dry beans, giving growers a new tool to protect their valuable crop.

Canola

  • Headline fungicide provides premium protection against blackleg and Alternaria black spot.
  • Your canola yields can reach new heights, maximizing your returns.

Corn

  • With Headline fungicide, it all starts with great disease control. But it continues throughout the season with visibly hardier plants that show improved stress tolerance and growth efficiency.
  • By harvest you can anticipate higher corn yield potential and better standability.

Cereals

  • Headline provides unprecedented control of the major leaf diseases in cereals, including tan spot, septoria leaf spot, leaf rust, powdery mildew and spot blotch in wheat and net blotch, spot blotch, stripe rust and scald in barley.
  • This new level of disease control results in higher yields vs. competitive products.

Flax

  • Early infection of Pasmo can reduce the yield and quality of flax substantially.
  • Headline fungicide provides effective control of this disease, ensuring improved yields and returns.

Soybeans

  • Headline protects soybeans from a broad spectrum of fungal pathogens, such as frog-eye leaf spot, resulting in significant yield gains.

Potatoes

  • Headline raises the standard for control of Early and Late Blight by a single fungicide.
  • An ideal rotation partner with Lance.
  • Headline plant health benefits have proven to increase yields in grower trials across Canada and the U.S.

Superior Rainfastness

  • Headline is rainfast within an hour of application.

Improved Harvestability

  • Lentils or peas that are lodged are very difficult to harvest and are often of lower quality if there is any moisture during the harvest period.
  • Headline significantly reduces lodging caused by disease infestation in both lentils and peas, which can save you both time and money.

Common questions

What is different about Headline fungicide?

There are many differentials that set Headline apart from other fungicides. Headline offers more activity on target diseases, superior rainfastness and crop safety, to name a few.

In addition, Headline has the unique ability to move rapidly through the leaf surface and to protect the opposite side of the leaf as well as the treated side, offering "dual-sided protection."

In addition, Headline offers unique plant health benefits resulting in hardier, stress tolerant stands and higher yields.

What crops is Headline registered on?

Headline is registered on lentils, dry beans, field peas, wheat, barley, rye, oats, flax, soybeans and potatoes.

What diseases does Headline control?

Headline is a broad-spectrum fungicide that will help growers control a wide range of disease in many crops.

When should I apply Headline?

Studies done by BASF indicate that the best yields are generated by applying Headline preventatively.

When to Apply

  • Do not apply Headline more than twice in a growing season.
  • Apply a second time 10 to 14 days later if disease persists or if weather conditions are favourable for disease development.

Canola, Brassica juncea, rapeseed, mustard

  • For blackleg control apply Headline at the 2 to 6-leaf (rosette) stage.
  • For alternaria black spot control apply Headline at 20 - 50% bloom to early pod stage (90% bloom)
  • Use the higher rate to obtain extended protection with maximum yield benefits

Lentils

  • Make the first application at row closure or at first flower, whichever comes first.

Field Peas

  • To control Mycosphaerella blight in field peas, apply Headline at the beginning of flowering or when 10% of the lower canopy is infected with disease.
  • For powdery mildew, apply a single application prior to the onset of disease or as soon as powdery mildew is detected.

Dry Beans

  • If Anthracnose is detected in the crop before flowering, apply Headline immediately.
  • In all other cases, apply Headline at early flower (20%-50% bloom).
  • Apply Headline a second time 10-14 days later if disease persists or weather conditions are favourable for disease development.

Cereals

  • Apply immediately after flag leaf emergence.

Flax

  • Should be applied preventatively at mid-flower (7-10 days after first flower).
  • Apply a second time 10 - 14 days later if disease persists, or weather conditions are favourable for disease development.

Corn

  • For optimal control apply prior to disease development.
  • If disease persists or weather conditions are favourable for disease development, apply a second time 10 to 14 days later.

Soybeans

  • Canadian research trials indicate that, in the absence of Asian soybean rust, application of Headline at the early pod stage (R2 – R3 growth stage) results in the highest yields.
  • It is important to note that infection of untreated leaves can occur earlier if conditions are favorable for disease development.

Potatoes

  • Begin application before disease symptoms appear.
  • Use higher rates of Headline, shorter spray intervals and/or tank-mixes under heavy disease pressure.
  • To optimize Headline plant health benefits, apply within the first 3 sprays at tuber initiation.
  • Based on disease conditions, an optional 2nd application should occur at early bulking

Sunflowers

  • For suppression of rust in sunflowers apply Headline prior to disease development
  • Apply a second time 10 to 14 days later if disease persists

How Much to Apply

  • Headline is formulated as a 250 g/L emulsifiable concentrate (EC) that mixes quickly in the spray tank, uniformly dispersing the active ingredient throughout the spray solution.
  • You may make two applications of Headline each growing season.
  • Do not apply Headline more than twice in a growing season.

Canola, Brassica juncea, rapeseed, mustard

  • Each 6.5 L jug of Headline contains enough fungicide to treat approximately 40 acres – 55 acres.
  • Do not apply more than 2 times a year.

Peas / Lentils/Soybeans

  • Each 6.5 L jug of Headline contains enough fungicide to treat approximately 40 acres.

Cereals

  • Each 6.5 L jug of Headline contains enough fungicide to treat approximately 40 acres – 55 acres.

Flax

  • Each 6.5 L jug of Headline contains enough fungicide to treat approximately 40 acres – 55 acres.

Corn

  • Each 6.5 L jug of Headline contains enough fungicide to treat approximately 27 acres – 40 acres.

Potatoes

  • Each 6.5 L jug of Headline contains enough fungicide to treat approximately 24 - 36 acres.

Sunflowers

  • Each 6.5 L jug of Headline contains enough fungicide to treat approximately 40 acres.
  • Apply a second time 10 to 14 days later if disease persists.

Water Volume

  • Apply Headline with a minimum 10 imperial gallons of water per acre (110/ha) by ground or 4.45 imperial gallons of water per acre (50L/ha) by air.

Research Information – Increasing water volume will improve control, especially with later applications where there are heavy crop canopies.
