Farmers had the opportunity to learn about many products during the 2013 Farm Progress Show. Tonia Carpenter, project lead for DuPont Crop Protection, tells Brownfield there is a lot of excitement surrounding Aproach Fungicide, and for good reason.
“Growers are seeing many benefits,” said Carpenter, “including a unique ability to redistribute within the plant, so it can protect those leaves yet to emerge as well as redistributing and getting deep within the crop canopy, to take care of both foliar diseases as well as soil borne diseases.”
Aproach is a broad-spectrum fungicide, keeping the plant in good condition throughout the growing season. Carpenter tells Brownfield in most of their field trials they are seeing a yield benefit of 6 – 9 bushels per acre when farmers use a product like Aproach.
