Sponsored: +$19.60 3-Year Average ROI with Priaxor Fungicide

This three-year study from Beck's Practical Farm Research (PFR)® was designed to evaluate the use of Priaxor® fungicide on soybeans when applied at the R3 growth stage. Priaxor was tested across six varieties of soybeans in an effort to determine yield and profitability. 

In order for soybean diseases to develop, they must accompany a susceptible host (the pathogen) and environmental conditions conducive to the establishment of the disease. Some diseases have a latent period where no disease symptomology is present, but the infection has already occurred.

This latent period can last for several weeks. Therefore, it is possible for fungicides to provide a return on investment due to disease suppression when you can’t visibly see the symptomology of disease.

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.
