Your Variety has Implications on Plant Health and ROI

Each year, WinField United tests 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.

Data from WinField United Answer Plots:

Fungicide Cost: $30.00
Corn Price: $3.50

Low – 8.5 bu/ac $0.25
Mod – 16 bu/ac $26.00
High – 21 bu/ac $43.50

This shows that your variety matters when it comes to ROI on a fungicide application.Ā  Below is RTF scores for popular varieties from Co-Alliance:
