Corn fungicides in 2016?
Although prices have bounced back some during this spring, they still are far below levels of 3 years ago. Will this impact your decisoin on whether or not to use fungicides on corn in 2016?

Re: Corn fungicides in 2016?
My decisions on whether to use fungicides typically involve:
1. Does the crop need it based on scouting
2. Will the crop benefit from it, based on scouting and prices
3. Can I get it applied?
4. What is the cost/benefit or economic threshhold or whatever you call it.
I enter the season figuring I will not use fungicde, so to me it's a rescue operation. Some expect to use it and may think differently about the price aspect.
