Combatting Surfactant Burns on Soybeans

  • Excessive rain has caused an underdeveloped waxy cuticle on the leaf resulting in burned tissue when surfactant is applied
  • Soybeans can recover quicker with application of Overpass® SF and Phosfix® products

Effects of Corn Diseases 

  • Southern rust can be detrimental to entire fields causing corn that doesn’t produce any ears
  • Corn can recover faster with Phosfix and Overpass CF with fungicide application

Identifying Characteristics of Corn Diseases

  • Northern corn leaf blight has long, cigar-shaped lesions on the corn leaf
  • Grey leaf spot has spotty, rectangular shapes that start small and grow bigger
  • Southern rust has rusty colored lesions on the corn leaf
