Fungicide use can increase yield

By Jennifer Bremer

Fungicide use has continued to become more prevalent, as it leads to increased production in corn and soybeans.

Missouri farmer and world record-holding soybean grower Kip Cullers said it is important to keep the plants happy, because a happy plant wants to produce. Cullers uses fungicides on his farm to help with disease problems.

He looks at using fungicides as a way to protect his investment and improve yields.

Daren Mueller, an Iowa State University Extension specialist with responsibilities in the Corn and Soybean Initiative, said, "Fungicides will not recover lost yield. If you want to improve your chances of recouping your cost of fungicides, then target fields that have higher yield potential."
