Brief Project Summary:

In recent years, producers have increased the number of fungicide and insecticide applications to soybean. While some of these applications target disease or insect infestations that were discovered by scouting and preserve soybean yields, other applications are made in the absence of disease or insects as preventative measures, and the benefits of these preventative applications are debatable. Results from some studies and grower experiences show an economic benefit to a fungicide application in the apparent absence of disease. Some producers include an insecticide with the fungicide application for convenience and perceived cost savings, even when the insect numbers are below established...

Final Project Results

The United Soybean Research Retention policy will display final reports with the project once completed but working files will be purged after three years. And financial information after seven years. All pertinent information is in the final report or if you want more information, please contact the project lead at your state soybean organization or principal investigator listed on the project.
