Yield Performance of PPST 250 plus DuPont™ Lumivia™ IST in Corn

 

Yield Performance of PPST 250 plus DuPont™ Lumivia™ Insecticide Seed Treatment in Corn

Objective

 
  • Evaluate performance of PPST 250 plus DuPont™ Lumivia™ insecticide seed treatment in corn.
     
    Side-by-side comparison of PPST 250 (left) vs. PPST 250 plus Lumivia insecticide seed treatment (right) in a 2014 Pioneer® GrowingPoint® agronomy research trial in Missouri.

    Figure 1. Side-by-side comparison of PPST 250 (left) vs. PPST 250 plus Lumivia insecticide seed treatment (right) in a 2014 Pioneer® GrowingPoint® agronomy research trial in Missouri. The trial field was in no-till corn and white grub pressure was noted at the location.

Study Description

 
  • PPST 250 plus Lumivia insecticide seed treatment is a combination of the standard PPST 250 corn seed treatment (4 fungicides & Cruiser® 250 insecticide) with the addition of the new insecticide seed treatment DuPont Lumivia (0.25 mg ai per seed), which contains the active ingredient chloranthraniliprole.
  • PPST 250 plus Lumivia insecticide seed treatment provides enhanced activity against a broad spectrum of early-season insect pests in corn including wireworm, black cutworm, fall armyworm, white grub and seedcorn maggot.
     
    Treatments:   PPST 250
    PPST 250 plus Lumivia insecticide
    Years: 2013, 2014, and 2015
    Locations: 187 agronomy research and on-farm trials
    Plots: Agronomy research: 8 rows by 40 ft
    On-farm: 3+ acres/treatment
    Hybrids: 1 hybrid per location (2 to 3 adapted hybrids per region across trials)

Results

 
Yield advantage of PPST 250 plus Lumivia insecticide seed treatment over PPST 250 in 2013, 2014 & 2015 DuPont Pioneer research and on-farm trials.

Figure 2. Yield advantage of PPST 250 plus Lumivia insecticide seed treatment over PPST 250 in 2013, 2014 & 2015 DuPont Pioneer research and on-farm trials.

  • 2013, 2014 & 2015 agronomy research and on-farm locations (187 locations):
    • Across all locations, PPST 250 plus Lumivia insecticide seed treatment had an average yield advantage of 2.5 bu/acre (yield increase at 58% of locations) over PPST 250 alone.
    • In responsive locations (108/187 locations), PPST 250 plus Lumivia insecticide seed treatment averaged 8.4 bu/acre more than PPST 250.
