The applicator’s first pass was to establish an

A-B line across the northern part of the field.

Next, he started on the south edge of the field and worked

his way north until he was empty, just short of the A-B line.

Columbia County, WI – October 28, 2010

Wind speeds of 30-40 MPH, with gusts in excess of 50 MPH, were common across

the Midwest earlier this week. The field shown in the following photos was planted

following corn and approximately 60% of it was treated with Headline ® at VT. Current

lodging scores for the treated and untreated areas are 17% and 79%, respectively!


Note: The vertical red lines in the

map are a result of harvesting less

than 8 rows in the combine pass.

Northeast Iowa – 2010

This grower treated a portion of his field with Headline

AMP TM fungicide, leaving an untreated check for

comparison at harvest. He also had the aerial

applicator spray a swath across the rows to see what

kind of response he could get from a 2X rate of

Headline AMP TM . The response was not only visual in

the photo taken just prior to harvest, but was also very

visual on the yield map!

2011 Recommendations to Maximize Results

• Rate:

Headline AMP @ 10 – 14.4 oz./A.

• Application Timing:

• VT to R3 or prior to onset of disease.

• Adjuvants:

• A non-ionic surfactant (at lowest labeled rate) is recommended for

use with Headline AMP only after corn reaches the VT stage (100%

tassel emergence) or before the V8 corn growth stage to help

ensure good spray coverage.

• Do not use adjuvants after the V8 stage or prior to the VT stage.

• Do not use adjuvants that contain methylated seed oil, crop oil

concentrate or crop oil with emulsifier properties.

• PHI: 20 days – grain.

including residual herbicide, fungicide,

insecticide, higher fertility, planting

date, and foliar feeding in the program

• Grower’s established a “traditional”

and “high yield” plot for comparison

• Opportunity to try high yield practices

on your farm

• The one constant treatment throughout

Headline ® Fungicide in Soybeans

2011 Recommendations to Maximize Results

Headline Rate:

6 oz./A.

• Foliar disease control.

• Improved soybean plant health.

• Application Timing:

• R3 (late R2 – early R4) – Mid to late July.

• Adjuvants:

• An adjuvant may be used to improve

coverage.

• Coverage:

• Ground: 15 GPA – medium to fine droplets.

• Air: 2+ GPA – medium to fine droplets.

• Can tank mix with insecticides.

R3 = Beginning pod


High Yield Summary

Headline and Headline AMP are important factors

in high yield environments

– Protect the plant from disease and other plant stresses

• Yield response from Headline and AMP is often

greatest when high yield practices are

implemented

• Maximizing controlled factors (planting date,

fertility, genetics) play a critical role in achieving

high yields
