Tips for Successful Fungicide Applications

Published on Wednesday, July 13, 2016

Many of you may be considering a fungicide application to your soybean fields this summer. We have seen nice yield increases and return on investment in our Practical Farm Research® studies when implementing this practice. Here are a few tips to help make it successful on your farm.

  • Shoot for the R3 growth stage to make the application. We have seen the most consistency at this stage.

  • Use enough pressure to get the product down in the canopy. I also like higher carrier volume to enhance coverage.

  • Use a fungicide with preventative and curative mode of action. This usually means a triazole and a strobulurin.

Unlike corn, we don’t see much of a difference in soybean varietal response to fungicide applications. Have a safe summer!
