STATESVILLE, N.C. — Does applying Xyway fungicide (flutriafol) in-furrow at planting negatively affect seedling germination in corn? NC State Extension gives an independent report on what happens when we compare seedling emergence in treated versus untreated plots.
This trial was planted at the NC Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services Piedmont Research Station in Salisbury, NC on April 29, 2021 in a Lloyd clay loam with a no-till planter. Starter fertilizer (10-27-0) was used in both control and Xyway treated plots at a rate of 10 gallons/acre. The variety is AgVenture AV3917YHB and is a dual use 117 day variety. Seeding rate was 32,000 seeds/acre to be harvested for silage. Full results will be posted after harvest.
