Bayer Receives EPA Approval for Prosaro® PRO 400 SC Fungicide

Bayer introduces the next generation of Prosaro® Fungicide for cereal growers, featuring enhanced disease control, greater DON reduction and higher yield potential. *

Prosaro Pro logo(ST. LOUIS, Jan. 31, 2022) – Bayer is excited to announce the launch of the new Prosaro® PRO 400 SC Fungicide, an evolution of Prosaro® fungicide – a market-leading solution for the control of Fusarium Head Blight (FHB)/head scab known for its trusted chemistry and reliability. This new fungicide built for cereal growers across the U.S. is an innovative crop protection product that delivers premium protection against head scab and reduces deoxynivalenol (DON) levels, leading to superior grain quality. *

Prosaro PRO is equipped with three active ingredients (AIs): Prothioconazole, Tebuconazole and Fluopyram. With the addition of Fluopyram and increased rate of Prothioconazole*, Prosaro PRO offers better disease control and greater DON reduction relative to Prosaro, leading to healthier plants and higher yield potential.

“Prosaro PRO fungicide is another innovative solution for cereal growers to protect their fields against foliar and head diseases,” shares Lindsey Aagesen, U.S. marketing segment manager – SeedGrowth and Cereals. “As a foliar fungicide that provides excellent disease protection against head scab and foliar diseases in wheat and barley, this new crop protection product raises the standard of what is expected from cereal fungicide performance.”

Growers can see the effects of Prosaro PRO on their crop's health through green and clean heads, leaves and stems without the negative impact on harvest. The long residual activity, disease control and DON reduction from Prosaro PRO will give cereal growers the confidence that they are not only protecting their yield potential and grain quality, but protecting their investments as well.

“Prosaro PRO provides an innovative combination of active ingredients designed to protect wheat crops from devastating diseases,” adds Aagesen. “We at Bayer are thrilled to bring another premium product to the market to help cereal growers boost their overall plant health backed by smarter science.”

Prosaro PRO fungicide is included in the Bayer PLUS Rewards program1 – a broad portfolio of crop protection products designed to provide growers with flexibility and rewards on eligible purchases all season long.
