Armstrong Research and Demonstration Farm
Fungicide use on hybrid corn continues to be of interest to many farmers in Iowa. Fungicides keep crops greener even after black layer development. Many farmers have reported corn stands better when a fungicide is applied. Consequently, some farmers apply a fungicide, even in the absence of disease, to assist with harvest. There are no published data to support this observation, therefore the objective of this trial was to determine if a fungicide application at VT reduced stalk lodging at harvest.
