Use of foliar fungicides by soybean producers has gained increased interest since 2004, with the potential threat of soybean rust. Although yield responses have not consistently recouped the cost of the applications, foliar fungicides may provide benefits in a different economic situation (i.e., specialty soybean crop). In addition, there may be a possibility of fungicide-treated soybeans producing higher quality seed.
