Growers across the country have experienced the many ways BASF Headline AMP® fungicide has a positive impact on their corn crops during the season.
In addition to managing disease pressures throughout corn fields, proactive use of Headline AMP fungicide provides Plant Health benefits including growth efficiency and stress tolerance which can help increase stalk strength and reduce lodging, leading to easier and faster corn harvesting.
“Lodged corn can cause yield losses of up to 25 percent and add an extra 5.5 days per each 1,000 acres to harvest,” said Caren Schmidt, Ph.D., Technical Market Manager, BASF. “Research indicates the disease control and Plant Health benefits of Headline AMP fungicide correlate to healthier plants and strong stalks for a more efficient corn harvest.”
