Automatic Soybean Fungicide Applications: Timing, Product Choice, Rates in Product Combination

IMG_0710

Questions continue regarding fungicide products to be used at the R3/R4 application timing. The most important decisions should be made based on the specific variety planted in each field since frogeye leaf spot is resistant to the strobilurin class of fungicides meaning that stand-alone strobilurin products are no longer effective against the disease. See the information contained within this blog post regarding fungicide products, effective rates of products in pre-mix combinations and the effectiveness of some fungicides on managing frogeye leaf spot. . . . → Read More: Automatic Soybean Fungicide Applications: Timing, Product Choice, Rates in Product Combination
