INFORMATION & IDEAS
Dandelions have become an increasing problem since many growers shifted to reduced-tillage or no-till systems. After the crop has been harvested in the fall, weeds such as dandelions begin to grow as they prepare to overwinter.
Strategies for controlling herbicide-resistant weeds in corn and soybeans with a preplant foundation of burndown and residual herbicide.
When drought conditions challenge cotton and corn crops, cotton bollworm control becomes a top priority. Frequent scouting and preparation to control insects when they reach threshold levels is the best defense against potential crop damage.

A residual fall burndown herbicide application helps reduce weed seed production, manage early winter annuals and provide weed control into spring.
A cold, wet spring can push planting dates to the limit, leaving little time for preplant herbicide applications. A fall application of DuPont™ Canopy® EX or Basis® herbicide post harvest can halt development of winter annual weeds and allow for earlier planting in a warmer, cleaner seedbed.
Foliar disease is a major cause of lodged stalks, which can lead to yield losses and increased harvest time. Frequent scouting and timely fungicide applications are the best defense against potential crop damage and yield loss.
Foliar health applications lead to higher yields and a larger profit margin.
Fungicides were not created equal. Check the active ingredients in each product to choose the best option.
For corn and soybean fungicide applications, timing is everything. Learn strategies for protecting crop yield potential by preventing disease damage.
The decision to apply a fungicide should be a calculated, proactive choice, based on management and environmental factors. Check these key factors.
Strategic fungicide applications can provide significant return on investment, especially critical when commodity prices are low.
The best way to battle low soybean prices is to increase yield. Use these criteria to measure your fungicide ROI.
By controlling plant diseases, fungicides maximize green leaf area to improve photosynthesis and help achieve yield potential.
Get the most value from fungicide use by selecting the best product and applying at the best time.
Gray leaf spot overwinters in corn residue and spreads from soil to plants with rain and wind. An infection can reduce corn yield 15 to 50 percent.
Late-summer insect pests can threaten crop quality. Feeding damage creates opportunities for fungal infection or rot and may trigger dockage at the elevator. Tips on scouting for damaging insect pests.
Diligent insect scouting and effective control measures are essential to protecting corn and cotton profitability by managing the effects of damaging worm pests.
Insect and weed pests can cause yield loss quickly. Noticing them in time to stop the damage requires regular scouting. Use these tips to make the most of scouting time.
Know the difference between mode and site of action to plan weed-control programs that manage herbicide resistance.
Northern corn leaf blight is expanding its range in the U.S., threatening yield and making control more difficult.
Post harvest applications are a smart weed management strategy.
Prevathon® insect control protects yield potential, reduces applications and gives growers seed selection flexibility. By preserving beneficial insects, Prevathon® avoids mite flare.
Not all fungicides are the same. Use this test to see how your fungicide stacks up.
Aproach® is a broad-spectrum fungicide that delivers more reliable corn disease control of both foliar and soil-borne fungal disease in corn, soybeans and wheat.

The DuPont Integrated Seed Science Network helps develop and test seed treatment formulations, applications and seed-handling techniques, with centers in Wilmington, Delaware, and Johnston, Iowa.
Increased no-till and reduced-till production has led to numerous benefits for corn growers, but it also has contributed a shift in the weed spectrum. For example, Italian ryegrass has become a significant problem in many fields.
Insect damage can take a bite out of yields and profits. Learn how to protect corn, soybeans and cotton with the right insect control program and resistance management strategies.
