INFORMATION & IDEAS
Use these three steps for effective next-season crop planning.
Preharvest time is when you should scout fields to see how crop protection strategies fared and plan for the next season.
Brown spot disease is most severe in continuously cropped soybean fields and can reduce yield 8 to 15 percent.
A team approach helps this Iowa grower boost corn yield and multiply the value of his crop input investment.
Expert provides crop management strategies to help growers plan for maximum yield next season.
The TruChoice® Early Pay Multiplier helps growers multiply their crop protection input costs when they make early commitments. Actual product choices can be made closer to application time.
As temperatures warm, watch for early signs of powdery mildew in wheat fields. Timely application of DuPont™ Aproach® or Aproach Prima® fungicide can help stop powdery mildew from spreading to protect yield potential.
Frogeye leaf spot can cause severe soybean yield loss. The disease can appear wherever warm, humid conditions occur.
Frogeye leaf spot causes disease on younger upper foliage of soybean plants and can reduce yield if management isn’t initiated early.
Aproach® Prima fungicide has two premier modes of action for better control of frogeye leaf spot and other hard-to-manage and strobilurin-resistant diseases in soybeans. The dual modes of action enhance resistance management and efficacy.
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.
Preserving foliar health is important to maximizing crop yield. Fungicide movement properties have a major impact on how well an application controls disease.
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.
Conditions good for growing soybeans are good for developing plant diseases. Fungicide use can be a sound investment for protecting yield.
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.
Northern corn leaf blight is expanding its range in the U.S., threatening yield and making control more difficult.
Wheat rust damage can cause a 60 percent yield loss if rust infects wheat at the flag leaf stage without treatment. Aproach® and Aproach® Prima fungicides help preserve yield potential.
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.
Aproach® is a broad-spectrum fungicide that delivers more reliable soybean disease control of both foliar and soil-borne fungal disease in corn, soybeans and wheat.
Fungicide resistance is a growing concern for many soybean growers. Heather Marie Kelly, University of Tennessee, describes strategies for resistant frogeye leaf spot control.
Soybean rust spores were found in 196 U.S. counties in 2015, although the disease has had limited effects.
