SOYBEAN FUNGICIDE RESPONSE

Why 2018 Could Potentially See the Return of Above Average Yield Responses to Soybean Fungicides

 

  • “Even” years tend to have lower white mold pressure
    • AYS data has shown fungicide response is strongest when we have years with low white mold pressure 2014,2016,2018?
    • With white mold eliminated as a the most yield limiting factor we should also see strong response to soil fertility and applied fertility
  • Strength of fungicide response seems to be driven by heat
    • July was above normal temperatures and August is predicted to be normal.
    • Disease models are predicting high leaf disease pressure.
