2019 PFR PROVEN - FUNGICIDE
Is a fungicide pass on corn or soybeans worth it?
IS A FUNGICIDE PASS WORTH IT?
Fungicides primarily prevent or mitigate disease pressure, but they can also increase water use efficiency, photosynthesis, nitrate reductase activity, increase the window for grain fill, and improve stress tolerance. How a fungicide works depends on its mode or modes of action.
WHEN SHOULD YOU SPRAY?
Later applications in corn control diseases that tend to move in after pollination. Many fungicides provide plant health benefits that keep the plant healthier during grain fill.
3-YEAR MULTI-LOCATION FUNGICIDE TIMING ROI
7-YEAR MULTI-LOCATION FUNGICIDE AND INSECTICIDE TIMING ROI
Approximately 70% of a soybean plant's yield comes from nodes 6 to 13. Those nodes are usually present at the R3 growth stage.
Trivapro delivers long-lasting disease control and crop enhancement benefits with three complementary modes of action (strobilurin, triazole, and SDHI). Trivapro has exceptional rainfastness and provides longer residual control, extending plant health.
Key Benefits: Especially strong on common and southern rust
DELARO™ 325 SC
Delaro contains two broad-spectrum modes of action in one product. It also contains 2.8 times the rate of Proline® compared to Stratego YLD® and provides both preventative and curative defenses against disease.
Key Benefits: Delaro is transported systemically throughout plant tissue and moves both on the inside and outside of the plant
Headline AMP fungicide provides two modes of disease control. The first provides preventive activity and the second is a triazole that provides postinfection disease control. One of the active ingredients in Headline AMP is F500®, which helps plants grow more efficiently and allows them to focus their energy on producing higher yields.
Key Benefits: Provides consistent plant health benefits in all environments
Priaxor fungicide protects plants from a broad spectrum of fungi. It is powered by Xemium® fungicide, an active ingredient that continuously distributes its chemistry throughout the leaf. Priaxor is a combination of Xemium fungicide and F500® - the same active ingredients in Headline AMP®.
Key Benefits: Decreased plant stress and increased photosynthesis and plant health
Stratego YLD fungicide combines triazole technology with strobilurin chemistry for disease control in soybeans. It provides both preventative and curative activity and more systemic movement.
Key Benefits: Lower use rate allows for easier handling, storage, and mixing
FUNGICIDE: YIELD ADVANTAGE
CORN MULTI-YEAR YIELD ADVANTAGE
The wide alleys at our PFR sites create an increased win movement. Because of the winds and frequent use of fungicides, we often see lower responses to those applications that you might see on your farm.
SOYBEAN MULTI-YEAR YIELD ADVANTAGE
TIME OF DAY
Fungicide applications appear to be more effective when applied in the morning. A dew may help spread the fungicide over the surface of the leaf.
2-YEAR MULTI-LOCATION 8 A.M. FUNGICIDE APPLICATION ROI VS. 3 P.M.
Timely fungicide applications pay due to the plant health benefits it provides.
HOW MUCH CARRIER?
Practical Farm Research data indicates that 15 to 20 gallons of carrier rate is the sweet spot. Always read and follow label directions
