RE : Syngenta Crop Protection, Inc /Palisade 2EC (a.i. Trinexapac-ethyl)
EPA Registration No. 100-1241, EPA SLN No. OR-120009
The Oregon Department of Agriculture is pleased to enclose SLN OR-120009, a registration
under FIFRA Section 24(c), to allow for the use of Palisade 2EC (Trinexapac-ethyl) on oats in
Oregon to reduce lodging. Concerned Oregon oat growers initiated conversation with Oregon
State University (OSU)- Extension and Syngenta Crop Protection, and are the driving force
behind this SLN.
This SLN will expire December 31, 2013, Syngenta has committed to collecting NW specific
efficacy data. When sufficient data are submitted, the Department will consider extending the
Oats are on the EPA Stamped and Accepted label (2/17/2012); however, they are not on the
market label. Oats are not on the market label because Syngenta is still in the process of
developing efficacy (including optimum timing) data.
Growers in Oregon planted late because of excessive rains, and alternate crop uncertainties.
Because of the amount of rainfall in Oregon, crops are especially susceptible to lodging (water
helps weigh down plants). In addition, some believe that using Palisade 2EC on oats will help
reduce the straw load on the fields, which will possibly help facilitate no-till planting.
According to Dr. Mike Flowers OSU Assistant Professor (Extension Cereals Specialist), oats
grown in the Willamette valley region of western Oregon are typically a forage type grown
under contract as a seed crop. Thus, oat growers are trying to maximize seed yield in varieties
that are tall, weak stemmed and prone to lodging. This leads to significant agronomic
challenges for growers as they try to optimize inputs while preventing lodging. It is in this
capacity that Palisade would be very useful to Oregon's oat growers.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you.

I wanted to alert everyone to an emerging disease problem in western Oregon. Stagonospora nodorum Blotch (formerly Septoria nodorum) seems to be rearing its ugly head this year. This leaf disease is very similar to the Septoria tritici that we usually see in western Oregon (see attached pictures). The main difference is that there are no black spots (pycnidia) in the lesions. The pycnidia of Stagonospora nodorum are brown and very difficult to see. In addition, if left uncontrolled Stagonospora nodorum can have a significant effect on yield if it infects the wheat head. Therefore, it is very important that growers control this disease with fungicides to prevent further infections.MikeEmail: email@example.com
Data from precision ag has immense value for making management decisions. These management decisions must be based on real-life questions you have about improving your operation, driven by your collected data. The data you collect has tremendous value beyond the benefits you see in the cab. So how do you begin the process of getting more answers from you precision ag data? How can adapting new technology benefit you when it comes to yield and financial decisions? How can you take what you already have and improve on it?
