There is considerable interest across Iowa and the whole Corn Belt in applying fungicides to field corn. In the past when corn prices were down below $2 a bushel, the decision to apply a fungicide was easy--no. This growing season, the high price of corn and increased disease risk due to increased corn-after-corn acreage has many producers considering fungicide applications as a means to increase yields.
