Sponsored: -$5.18/A. 5-Year Average ROI of VT Fungicide

To determine the return on investment for VT fungicide applications, Beck's Practical Farm Research (PFR)® team has conducted a five-year, corn after soybean evaluation of the yield response and return on investment of Stratego® YLD and Headline AMP® on three different hybrids.

Over the five years that this study has been conducted, Beck's PFR has see a -$5.18/A. average ROI. To see the full study details and results, click here. 

“In a corn after soybean rotation, knowing the expected hybrid response to a fungicide application, the disease pressure present, and the weather forecast are extremely important. Scouting is crucial in this scenario. In my experience, corn after corn is a situation where I typically end up recommending fungicide. In a corn after soybean scenario, I rely heavily upon timely field scouting.”
- David Hughes, Beck’s Field Agronomist
