1. Unbeatable protection for chickpeas & lupins

2. Chemtura Australia Pty Ltd shall not be liable in any manner whatsoever for errors, omissions, results, loss or damage whether consequential or otherwise resulting from the use of and/or access to information in this Tech Topic. ® Thiraflo is a registered trademark of a subsidiary of Chemtura Corporation Chemtura Australia Pty Ltd Level 7, 435 King William Street Adelaide South Australia 5000 Tel: (08) 8112 0900 Fax: (08) 8112 0999 www.chemtura.com.au (PM349) Always refer to the label for complete details Control Root and Stem Rot in Chickpeas with Thiraflo In the absence of adequate crop rotations, Pythium spp and other root rots cause emergence problems while Botrytis infects the stem. Botrytis can be carried over between seasons on the seed, on plant debris or in the soil. It causes the base of the stem to rot and become covered in fluffy grey mould. Infected plants eventually die. Seed discoloured by the disease may be rejected or discounted at the silo. Ascochyta blight can decimate chickpea crops. Thiraflo gives excellent control of seed-borne Ascochyta blight and is the most economic seed treatment option. Anthracnose Control in Lupins Anthracnose in lupins causes pink-beige spots on stem & leaves with brown halos. This causes the stems to bend and twist and can cause distortion to the pods, causing significant damage. Thiraflo will reduce the incidence of seed-borne anthracnose infection. Superior Formulation Thiraflo was the first flowable (Thiram) seed treatment formulation for use on chickpeas. The superior formulation means that it’s safer to use and gives better coverage, with no dust. Yield Response Favourable crop establishment leads to greater crop growth and hence increased yields. Lupin & Chickpea crops are often subject to conditions favourable for disease development. Thiraflo is effective in protecting these crops during the critical establishment phase which leads to a healthier crop with increased yields. When to Apply Thiraflo Lupins & Chickpeas can be treated with Thiraflo anytime between harvest and sowing. Thiraflo will not interfere with the established rhizobia population. If both inoculant and fungicide are required, Thiraflo should be applied to the seed first, and once dry, followed with the inoculant. Sow seed as soon as possible after inoculation into a moist seed bed. Seed Type Disease Rate Critical Comments Chickpeas Seed-borne botrytis ( Botrytis spp), and Seed- borne ascochyta blight ( Ascochyta rabiei ) 2.0 L/t seed Thiraflo must be applied at the correct rate to achieve uniform coverage of all seeds. Thiraflo can be applied to the seed undiluted or mixed with water to achieve optimum coverage of grain with the seed treatment. If water is required, as a recommendation, make a slurry by mixing 2 litres of Thiraflo with 3 litres of water. Apply 5 litres of this mixture per tonne of seed. Apply only to good quality graded seed. Move the seed up a grain auger or apply in a suitable mixer. The mixing of seed after application is essential to obtain good seed coverage. The total volume of slurry applied/tonne should be minimised to approximately 5 litres. Handle seed carefully after application and avoid excess wetting to prevent damage to the seed coat. In the case of ascochyta and botrytis, Thiraflo will reduce the incidence of seed-borne infection, but follow up foliar fungicide sprays registered for this purpose will be required to control field infection.
