TUNE YOUR DISEASE CONTROLTO THE WAY YOU FARM.New DuPont™ Acapela™ fungicide. Like music to your crop.
Fungicide Use in Corn andSoybeans is GrowingSTRATUS MARKET RESEARCH DATA:• Fungicide use in corn and soybeans continues to grow in Canada with approximately 10% of theacres receiving a fungicide application in 2012.• Over 700,000 acres of foliar fungicides were applied on corn and soybeans representing over 50%year/year growth.Soybean fungicides Corn fungicides
DuPont™ Acapela™ fungicide:Launch 2012 a Great SuccessFACTS:• Growers applied Acapela™ fungicide onover 100,000 acres in corn and soybeansin its launch year• According to Stratus data, Acapela™ wasthe #2 brand in corn and #3 brand insoybeans – in its launch year.FIELD RESULTS:• Acapela™ was tested in over 125 grower side xside trials in 2012.• Acapela™ performance was impressive,delivering consistent yield advantages in spiteof dry conditions and relatively low diseasepressure in 2012
DuPont™ Acapela™ fungicideBENEFIT•Acapela™ has one-of-a-kind movement properties that help provide superior coverage todeliver reliable disease control under a variety of conditionsSOLUTION•Acapela™ provides control of a broad spectrum of important foliar diseases in row cropsincluding Northern Leaf blight, Septoria, Cercospora, Rust and Powdery mildew*•Acapela™ is an innovative new tool for the management of white mould, a devastatingdisease of soybeans and edible beans*VALUE•Acapela™ helps to deliver healthier crops and higher yield potential*Refer to the Acapela™ label for complete use instructions.
• The redistribution properties of Acapela™ are unique because it is the only strobilurinthat shows both:– vapour activity; a gas like protective barrier that moves locally over the leaf surface and;– xylem systemic activity; movement through the plant tissues to distribute throughout the leafas it growsUptake and Translocation in Soybeans after 7 DaysDuPont Crop ProtectionStine-Haskell ResearchCenterNewark, DEAcapela™ Quadris® Headline®BENEFITOne-of-a-kind Movement PropertiesDuPont™ Acapela™ fungicide

Acapela™ for CornEarlier Applications at V4-V6• Primary focus of research and side x side data with Acapela™ has been at the VT-R3window of application.• Acapela is registered for application at earlier V4-V6 window of application. Trials will beconducted in 2013 to evaluate this earlier timing.• We have limited greenhouse studies in 2011 and field trials in 2012 demonstratingvisual and yield responses. Further trials are planned in 2013 to understand the value ofthis earlier application timing.SOLUTION
