Growing Insights - V5 fungicide

Jun 05, 2020

Irv Arndt, CFS Agronomist
We started working with V5 fungicide on corn several years ago and what I have seen has made me a believer. The first benefit I have noticed is a more vigorous plant with a robust root system. This allows the plant to be more efficient in nutrient uptake while creating a healthier plant. Fungicide applied at this time helps the plant through the stresses of the season by making it more efficient with water utilization also. I would say the biggest single benefit is better standability in the fall because of a healthier stalk which allows you to harvest more grain.
 In all our data we have shown an average of 7-bushel yield response over the past years. This makes V5 a sound returns on investment even in a tough grain market.

Join the Children’s Museum of Southern Minnesota on June 1 for Ag Education
Day. Ag is so relevant in our region, but many children only “see” it from a bus window. This FREE 
Museum day gives a hands-on opportunity to explore, learn, and ask questions about the importance 
of agriculture in our everyday life. Teaching children about agriculture at a young age can help 
them start recognizing how it impacts the world around them and can help them learn other important 
aspects about life.

Highlights as of 5/16:
Planting and weather conditions are the name of the game currently. With planting progress looking very favorable and the weather forecast showing above normal temps and below normal precipitation for much of the corn belt all signs point to very good planting conditions. With that, we gave up yesterday’s gains on old crop and put in some new lows on December corn.
