Corn Hybrid Response to DuPont™ Aproach® Prima Fungicide

 

Soybean Yield Response to DuPont™ Aproach® Prima Fungicide (Southern U.S.)

Objective

  • Evaluate soybean yield response to DuPont™ Aproach® Prima fungicide applied at the R3 growth stage on Pioneer® brand soybean varieties.

Study Description

Plot Layout:    On-farm strip trials
 
Locations:    9 (Miss., Ky., Ala, Tenn.)
 
Years:    2014-2015
 
Fungicide Treatment¹:
  • Aproach Prima fungicide (6.8 fl oz/acre at R3 stage)
  • Non-treated control
 
Pioneer brand soybean varieties:
  • Variety/Brand²:
    P47T36R
P48T53R
      P50T64R
94Y82(R)
 
Data Collected:   Soybean yield (bu/acre)
 
¹ Make no more than 2 applications of a picoxystrobin containing product before switching to a fungicide with a different mode of action. The minimum retreatment interval in soybeans for Aproach Prima fungicide is 14 days. Do not exceed 13.6 fluid ounces of Aproach Prima fungicide per acre per crop.
 
² All Pioneer products are varieties unless designated with LL, in which case some are brands.
 

Results

Leaves from Pioneer® variety P54T94R treated with Aproach Prima and leaves from a non-treated plant from a trial near Leland, Miss. in 2015.

Leaves from Pioneer® variety P54T94R treated with Aproach Prima and leaves from a non-treated plant from a trial near Leland, Miss. in 2015.
Application made July 15; photo taken August 24. FELS score for P54T94R = 4 using a 1-9 scale where 1=highly susceptible and 9=resistant.

* Data collected from 6 locations using 9 individual comparisons between varieties with a FELS score of 5 vs. a FELS score of 8 using a 1 to 9 rating scale where 1=highly susceptible to FELS and 9=resistant to FELS. Observations made in Ala., Ky., Miss., and Tenn. in 2015.
 

Summary

  • Averaged over 19 locations, soybean plots treated with Aproach Prima fungicide yielded an average of 3.7 bu/acre more than non-treated plots (Figure 1).
  • Economical yield responses occurred with 13 of 19 paired comparisons, or 68% of the time (Figure 2).
  • Soybean yield responses to Aproach Prima fungicide applied at the R3 growth stage ranged from 2.7 bu/acre with Pioneer variety P47T36R to 3.9 bu/acre with 94Y82 (Figure 3).
  • Yield response to Aproach Prima fungicide for varieties with a frogeye leaf spot score of 5 were not greater than responses observed with more tolerant varieties (Figure 4).
  • These data indicate that economical yield responses can be achieved with Aproach Prima fungicide applied to soybean at the R3 growth stage and that these responses may not necessarily be correlated with disease susceptibility scores.

Glyphosate Tolerant    R - Contains the Glyphosate Tolerant trait. Always follow grain marketing, stewardship practices and pesticide label directions. Varieties with the Glyphosate Tolerant trait (including those designated by the letter “R” in the product number) contain genes that confer tolerance to glyphosate herbicides. Glyphosate herbicides will kill crops that are not tolerant to glyphosate.
