Fungicide Benefits: Proof in the Canopy Temperature Aug. 1, 2016

mma 080116
Want to prove if your fungicide worked?
We used a thermal imaging unit to test canopy temperature on July 27th, one of the hottest days in July. Corn with fungicide treatments vs. those without had lower temperatures which impacts the rate of chemical and biological development of corn.
More heat=shorter maturity.
Cooler temps=corn being more efficient with energy/nutrients/water.
You can learn more about this fungicide test at our Research Plot Showcase on Aug. 23rd in Farnhamville.
