Two systemic fungicides, triadimefon and fenapanil, appear promising for control of stem rust epidemics on spring wheat in the north central United States. One spray of these fungicides, suitably timed to host and rust development, gave satisfactory control in moderate rust epidemics. Good control was obtained in most schedules of two sprays applied at a 720 day interval during the period from primary infection to early logarithmic increase of rust. Triadimefon was generally more effective than fenapanil at 280 g (a.i.)/ha.
