Response of Broad Spectrum and Target Specific Seed Treatments and Seeding Rate on Soybean Seed Yield, Profitability and Economic Risk

Editor’s Note: This summary was posted in the January 19 edition of the Wisconsin Crop Manager (Volume 24: No.1). The full article can be accessed here. The commercial base (CB) and ILeVO (CB + fluopyram) seed treatments decreased risk and substantially increase profit across a wide range of seeding rates. Yield response to seed treatment was environment specific, and across all environments, the yield response to ILeVO was 2.8% compared to 5.3% (WISDS) and 6.1% (IA) when visual SDS symptoms were present. At 2016 and 2017 seed and seed treatment costs, CB and ILeVO seed treatments at 140,000 seeds/A reduced [...]
