Target this disease before it targets you.

As cotton and soybean growers in the Delta and Southeast have learned in recent years, target spot is out there. In fact, it’s spreading, including into new northerly latitudes. But the good news is that there’s a proven solution already out there, too: Priaxor® Xemium® brand fungicide.

Target spot is looking for more cotton and soybean fields to infect. Growers should target it first. As the disease continues to make its way into more Southeast and Delta acres and new latitudes farther north, proactively using the right solution can be the difference between a good season and a lost one.


Preventative applications of Priaxor fungicide can help stop target spot from developing. For a disease that can cause 50–80% defoliation in a soybean field and wipe out 15–20 bu/A of yield, or eliminate 400–600 lb/A of lint yield in cotton, that can be a game-changer.
