Early Signs of Powdery Mildew

Early Signs of Powdery Mildew

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.

Evaluating Corn Rootworm Control

Evaluating Corn Rootworm Control

Larval injury from corn rootworms may make roots more susceptible to root and stalk rot disease, even on hybrids with rootworm-resistant traits. Scouting and evaluating control measures can help growers manage damage and yield loss.

Foliar Disease Can Threaten Yield

Foliar Disease Can Threaten Yield

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.

Frogeye Leaf Spot Risk Factors

Frogeye Leaf Spot Risk Factors

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.

Fungicide Application Timing

Fungicide Application Timing

For corn and soybean fungicide applications, timing is everything. Learn strategies for protecting crop yield potential by preventing disease damage.

Fungicide Movement Matters

Fungicide Movement Matters

Preserving foliar health is important to maximizing crop yield. Fungicide movement properties have a major impact on how well an application controls disease.

Gray Leaf Spot Control

Gray Leaf Spot Control

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.

How Insect Pests Affect Crop Quality

How Insect Pests Affect Crop Quality

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.

Make the Most of Scouting Time

Make the Most of Scouting Time

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.

Northern Corn Leaf Blight Control Basics

Northern Corn Leaf Blight Control Basics

Northern corn leaf blight is expanding its range in the U.S., threatening yield and making control more difficult.

Protect Wheat Yield From Rust Damage

Protect Wheat Yield From Rust Damage

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.

Reliable Corn Disease Control

Reliable Corn Disease Control

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.

Reliable Soybean Disease Control

Reliable Soybean Disease Control

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.

Resistant Frogeye Leaf Spot Control

Resistant Frogeye Leaf Spot Control

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 White Mold Risk Factors

Soybean White Mold Risk Factors
