What is Response to Fungicide?

While the seed guide is a good place to start, Answer Plot® data from WinField United provides more about in-season results. Each year, we test 240 hybrids across seed brands to determine response-to-fungicide (RTF) scores. Unlike most seed guides, which base disease ratings on visual observations, Answer Plot data is used to calculate the potential yield response of a fungicide application by hybrid. The trials are replicated more than 200 times to account for different growing conditions and geographies.Yield response ranged from -4 to 38 bushels per acre, which reinforces different hybrid responses to fungicide application.  At UFC, we partner with Winfield United to bring you valuable insights like these to help make your farm more profitable.  Read more on fungicide application, and get in touch with your agronomist today.
