For a crop protection strategy, growers need to consider the history of crop disease, What has been done past seasons and what has worked well.
Many growers started off the 2016 season by planting crops earlier than average compared to past years. To help address the accompanying increased risk of disease and cold stress, numerous growers made an in-furrow fungicide application. For these growers now in mid-season, their application is still impacting their plants.
With the recent cool and wet conditions this spring, corn plants that were treated in-furrow are getting a greater jump out of the ground and showing increased stand count despite adverse conditions and potential for disease.
In the past couple of years, growers have started the movement of using a foundation of fungicide in the furrow to mitigate the adverse effects associated with planting into these conditions. This adoption of fungicide in the furrow has given growers greater confidence as they have seen quicker emergence as well as more overall plants compared to an untreated acre.
LIFT Partners are offering special programs designed for growers pursuing new and innovative techniques to maximize yields with proven inputs and in-furrow technologies.
A recap of the LIFT Agriculture Summit told through 31 tweets by people and organizations who attended the event.
Xanthion In-furrow fungicide creates a shield for both the root and root zone with the chemical and biological working independently of each other for protection well into the vegetative growth of the corn plant. This protection allows growers to maximize their corn yields.
In-furrow fungicide applications are a sound treatment option for growers looking to protect their seed investment from early-season diseases.
