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!
