Plot size can influence yield benefits from fungicides

Fungicides are often evaluated in small-plot trials that are effective for assessment of disease control, but not very effective for assessment of true potential yield benefit.

Summit Agro USA R&D Manager Dr. Eric Tedford co-authored an article published in the journal Crop Protection investigating this question of whether plot size has an effect on the yield benefit of foliar fungicides. 

The authors’ research found evidence to support the idea that larger plots are more reflective of yield benefits that growers might recognize from fungicides compared to smaller plots. This is important for growers to remember when assessing fungicide yield data as they choose crop protection solutions.

TIMOREX ACT Fungicide Receives California Registration for Fruits and Vegetables

The California Department of Pesticide Regulation has recently granted registration approval for TIMOREX ACT fungicide. This OMRI-listed product delivers advanced natural plant disease control in multiple fruit and vegetable crops.

TIMOREX ACT is a FRAC Code 46 fungicide containing the active ingredient tea tree oil. Because tea tree oil is a natural compound, and formulated with organic approved complementary components, TIMOREX ACT is OMRI listed for organic uses.

“TIMOREX ACT has unique activity against both fungal and bacterial plant pathogens.” explained Eric Tedford, SummitAgro field R&D manager. “Having activity against bacterial diseases as well as fungal diseases is a huge benefit to growers as both pathogens can greatly limit yield and quality and there are not many products available to growers for control of bacterial diseases.”
