This recommendation is for the use of reduced rates of Headline fungicide to control Tan Spot

(Pyrenophora teres) on wheat and barley in Oregon.
Directions for Use
The container label for Headline use in wheat and barley recommends applications of 6-9 fl. oz per acre timed
to protect the flag leaf. Optimum disease control is achieved when fungicides are applied before disease onset
and epidemics have a chance to accelerate. Headline application for tan spot, Septoria leaf blotch and net
blotch control can be made early in the season when conditions favor disease development. However,
optimum results still may require an additional application later in the season to protect the flag leaf.
For early season control, apply 3 fl. oz. per acre of Headline either in combination with an herbicide application
or when conditions favor disease development. When the 3 oz. early season application rate is used, a second
application of Headline is strongly recommended to protect the emerged flag leaf. Environmental conditions
