Joe Cacka, the agronomist for Crop Production Services recently released data from his research in 2010. While reviewing his data I was very interested in a wheat trial in the Tangent area. The purpose of the trial was to evaluate the impact of different fungicides applied at the early flag leaf stage. 2010 was a severe year for disease problems in wheat and that point was made dramatically clear when I saw the results of Joe’s trial. The take home message is that the untreated plot yielded an average of 37% less than treated plots. The grower’s field was treated twice with a fungicide and the difference was even greater! Do the math at current wheat prices!
