Sponsored: +$20.39/A. 3-Year Average ROI for VT Application

In their third year of a three-year, multi-location study, Beck's Practical Farm Research (PFR)® team set out to evaluate Priaxor® and Headline AMP® fungicides when applied at different times throughout the growing season. The goal of this study is to determine if variations in application timing affect yields.

Every year in PFR, Beck's allocates significant plot space to studies in an effort to understand and better manage diseases. 

Of the many yield limiting factors we cannot control, disease is one that we do have tools to fight against.

In this multi-year, multi-location fungicide study, Beck's tested treatments at the V5 and VT growth stages, both alone and together. As the graph below demonstrates, Beck's PFR continues to see the greatest benefit from VT growth stage applications over time.

Beck's Hybrids PFR program conducts more than 100 different studies across multiple locations (700+ acres) to learn how different management practices and new technologies perform in field environments. Simply put, it is research focused with the farmer in mind.
