Brief Project Summary:

Through multi-location trials across the state, this project has provided information on the value of applying a foliar fungicide to soybean. Based on results from 2007, fungicides significantly increased yield at two of the ten locations. The significant yield increases at these two locations were likely related to nearly two to three times more rainfall being received at these locations in July and August compared to other locations in the state; thus, presumable more foliar fungal disease pressure at these locations. These results have been used in extension presentations given around the state and have been used in Extension newsletters and farm press articles. Variability in soybean...

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.
