With soybean commodity prices at record high prices, the number of questions regarding key management considerations also remains high. One of the question that we often receive regards the use of seed treatments, in particular the use of seed treatment fungicides and/or insecticides. Since 2008, we have conducted trials throughout Wisconsin to examine if seed treatments are economically viable for soybean production. In particular, we are most interested in trying to answer the following question: “what is the probability that if I use a seed treatment, the cost of the application is covered?”
