Use of fenpropimorph on transgenic soybean

The present publication relates to a method of controlling pests and/or increasing the health of transgenic soybean as compared to a corresponding control soybean by treating the transgenic soybean, parts of a soybean plant, seed, or their locus of growth with fenpropimorph.

One typical problem arising in the field of pest control lies in the need to reduce the dosage rates of the active ingredient in order to reduce or avoid unfavorable environmental or toxicological effects whilst still allowing effective pest control.

In regard to the instant publication the term pests embrace harmful fungi causing disease in soy-

black root rot (Calonectria crotalariae), brown leaf spot (Septoria glycines), brown stem rot (Phi- alophora gregata), charcoal rot (Macrophomina phaseolina), cercospora leaf blight (Cercospora carotae, Cercospora kikuchii), texas root rot (Phymatotrichum omnivorum), dactuliophora leaf spot (Dactuliophora glycines), downy Mildew (Peronospora manshurica), drechslera blight (Drechslera glycini), frogeye leafspot (Cercospora sojina), fusariurn blight or wilt, root rot, and pod

 aporthe phaseolorum var. caulivora), stemphylium leaf blight (Stemphylium botryosum), target spot (Corynespora cassiicola), thielaviopsis root rot (Thielaviopsis basicola) and white mold (Scle- rotinia sclerotium),

The use of fenpropimorph as fungicide on transgenic plants has been described before: WO2006/128095 discloses the use of a mixture of glyphosate and fenpropimorph to control fun-

mixtures of N-THIO-ANTHRANILAMIDE and fenpropimorph on transgenic plants, including transgenic soybean plants.

Another problem is the desire for compositions that improve the health of a plant, a process which

bean. The term harmful fungi includes members of the Ascomycetes, Deuteromycetes, Basidio- mycetes, or Oomycetes, including but not limited to members of the Uredinales, Ustilaginales, and Erysiphales. Non limiting examples of diseases of soybean along with the responsible fungi species are: anthracnose (Colletotrichum dematium, Colletotrichum lindemuthianum), aerial blight (Rhizoctonia solani), asian soybean rust (Phakopsora pachyrhizi, Phakopsora meibomiae),
