Fungicide Placement Study

2018 Southern Illinois Wheat Fungicide Placement Study

  • Southern IL

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the use of the 360 UNDERCOVER® system compared to a traditional over-the-top fungicide application at the Feekes 8 growth stage.

2018 RESULTS

 

 

OBSERVATION

Out of all the years we’ve tested fungicides on wheat in PFR, we’ve typically applied them over-the-top of the crop with multidirectional nozzles. This season, the idea to use the 360 UNDERCOVER® system in combination with the over-the-top nozzles proved to be more beneficial than the over-the-top applications alone. Although both provided yield advantages over the untreated check (with little disease pressure due to dry weather), the advantage of more complete coverage inside as well as over the canopy proved to be the most successful. As we know with the prevention and control of diseases, coverage is king when it comes to maximizing return on investment.
