Each season, growers have to decide if they want to invest in a fungicide. At the end of the day, selecting the right fungicide comes down to the numbers. At the end of the season, will there be a positive return on investment?
When dealing with the unpredictable nature of disease, growers need a product that performs consistently and provides ROI they can count on. This season, consider Trivapro® fungicide.
Based on performance in the past 2 years, Trivapro growers are convinced it is the hardest-working, longest-lasting disease protection option available, consistently increasing yield and boosting plant health in corn, soybeans and wheat.
In 2017, 79% of corn growers who used Trivapro made a profit1, and growers and retailers had a lot to say about the results from the field.
Matthew Hampton, a corn and soybean grower from Morgantown, KY, shared, “When corn fungicides first came out, years ago I tried it, but didn’t see much advantage. Now, with Trivapro, we’ve changed our minds. We’re basically going to use it on all of our acres.”
What has growers convinced?
“Solatenol® fungicide, the SDHI component of Trivapro, extends the length of control weeks longer than other brands. This means that when disease comes in late in the season, it’s still working when other fungicides have quit. This allows the Trivapro-treated plant to dry down naturally, extending the grain-fill window, when other plants are dying down early from disease,” explained Brett Johnson, Syngenta fungicide product lead.
Jeremy Sollberger – a retailer at Southern States in Campbellsville, KY – said, “At $3.50/bu corn, a 10-bushel yield increase will more than cover the cost of application of the fungicide2. We’re seeing a 20-plus bushel increase with Trivapro, so that’s 70 dollars of revenue in the producer’s pocket. I don’t know what else they’re going to do during the season to put $70 in their pocket.”
These results are widespread throughout various states and crops. Compared to untreated, Trivapro produced an average of:
- 6.7 bu/A more soybeans3
- 13 bu/A more wheat4
- 18.5 bu/A more corn5
“Across all of our trials from 2016 and 2017, we’ve seen an average ROI of $37.75 per acre in corn, and growers can take that to the bank,” said Johnson6.
