In 2013 many growers were lucky to get their crops in let alone in a timely manner, many of the North Iowa area growers pulled back on the idea of fungicide. Ag. Management Solutions still managed to spray double the amount of acres we had the year before and the results were amazing despite conventional wisdom of fungicide and when it should or shouldnt be sprayed. We did a side by side test around the Minnesota/Iowa border where 120 feet of untreated was surrounded by Headline AMP treated corn. The results were apparent to the naked eye in stalk integrity and plant intactness along with a +16.4 bushel yield response. Many growers concerns are that by spraying fungicide youre going to have wetter corn, this was true in this test by 2 points however this grower in particular didnt mind with a yield response like that he stated that "its a no brainer".
