5 Things To Know About Fungicide

Most growers ask if the ROI will pay out for Fungicide application. The answer is YES! It is extremely important to provide preventative measures to your crop, so diseases don’t rob their yield potential. Here are 5 Things to know about Fungicide.

  1. Right seed vs. Right Fungicide

First of all, knowing what hybrids have a higher response to a fungicide application is important.  AnswerPlot® data from WinField United provides calculated yield response of fungicide application by hybrid. The trials have been replicated in all regions, multiple times to account for different growing conditions and geographies.

  1. When to Apply

In general, you’ll see the biggest ROI when applying fungicide at tassel time in corn and at R3 in soybeans.  Helping plants mitigate stresses during grain fill is the goal of a fungicide application.

  1. To Treat or Not to Treat

There are many factors to consider when deciding if you should make a plant health application.  Factors such as hybrid selection, current and future weather forecast, crop rotation and disease pressure are some of the things you should evaluate when making a decision.

  1. Trusted Names for Protection

Trivapro fungicide is a broad-spectrum, preventative fungicide for the control of many important plant diseases, formulated as a suspo-emulsion (SE). It also improves the yield and quality of the crop.

Active Ingredients: Azoxystrobin, Propiconazole, Solatenol®

Quadris Top® SBX fungicide offers soybean growers the most robust formulation for broad-spectrum preventive and curative disease control. Controlling many diseases including strobilurin-resistant frogeye leaf spot, Quadris Top®  SBX promotes larger beans, fuller pods, better retention and healthier plants overall. It helps protect the plants against diseases including brown spot, rust, powdery mildew, frogeye leaf spot (susceptible and resistant strains). Active Ingredients: azoxystrobin and difenoconazole

  1. Why should we use an adjuvant

Data from 2017 AnswerPlot® trials showed a 5.7 bushel yield increase when MasterLock was used over just a fungicide.  Effective crop protection depends on good coverage. It’s not about the ounces of product per acre that you spray, what’s important is that the active ingredient is reaching the plant.



MasterLock® optimizes droplet size to reduce drift potential and help ensure more product penetrates into the canopy. It also contains a surfactant to help cover more leaf surface area.
