ISU:  Research on Soybean Fungicide Results.

From an ISU News Release.

The results of a six-year fungicide study indicate treatments are more effective in control and ultimately increasing yields when applied under heavier disease pressures.

Iowa State University (ISU) plant pathologists X. B. Yang, S. S. Navi and John Shriver recently released the numbers showing the link between pest pressures and fungicide applications.

"Our results clearly showed that use of fungicide as a preventative measure can increase yields in a season when disease pressure is moderate or high. In such a season, many fungicide treatments yielded better and a few treatments increased yield over 10 bushels.
