Trial Shows Impact of Fungicide

Jun 26, 2020

Technology continues to change the way we evaluate the effectiveness of ag products and applications. In particular, Climate FieldView™ allows us to more easily compare treatments within the same field by choosing specific applicator passes.
 
In 2019, we applied fungicide to one area of a corn field at V5 and left a similar area of the same field untreated. We then treated the entire field again at R1. Comparing the results using the FieldView software, we found a positive difference of nine bushels at harvest for the corn treated at V5. We observed better stalk quality and a generally cleaner plant with respect to disease.
 
We’ll be looking at more treatments this year, including a product you can apply at V5 while you’re post spraying your corn herbicide. Talk to your Agri Trails agronomist to find out more about the applications we’re evaluating.
