  • FST

* Multiple fungicides and insecticide combinations were used across the 4 years of the study. Both treatments had ConcepĀ® III seed safener applied.

 

Grain sorghum seed treatment trial near Corpus Christi, TX; April 16, 2011.

Results

 

  • 63% of locations over the 4 years showed a yield advantage averaging 2 bu/acre when using FST/IST seed treatment vs. an FST only treatment.

 

 
 

2012 data are based on average of all comparisons made in 228 locations through December 20, 2012. Multi-year and multi-location is a better predictor of future performance. Do not use these or any other data from a limited number of trials as a significant factor in product selection. Product responses are variable and subject to a variety of environmental, disease, and pest pressures.  Individual results may vary.
