Information Management to Maximize Your Yields

Fungicide Application at V5

Corn plants have been stressed this spring with high winds and sand-blasting, causing damage to the plant tissue and allowing an entry point for disease.

Fungicide applications at VT-R1 have consistently proven a return on investment and should never be supplemented by a fungicide application at V5, but is this a year to add that second application at V5?

 

Application has been beneficial when following three objectives:

1.) Corn on corn

2.) Offensive hybrids

3.) Physical damage.

All must be considering in determining a fungicide application. Please talk with your agronomist about this if interested.
