Foliar fungicide use in field corn has increased dramatically in some areas of the
country during the past decade. The benefits of foliar fungicides for managing
several fungal leaf diseases has been well-documented. Although, questions about
application timing, plant health benefits, and which products to choose can make
fungicide treatment decisions difficult. In this session, we will review results from
foliar fungicide trials conducted on corn in Nebraska.
