Will you spray fungicide on your corn acres this summer?

In previous years, many Extension specialists have warned against not spraying fungicide unless disease is present. This year, some Corn Belt plant pathologists are giving the go-ahead to spray acres. Will you spray your corn acres this year? Will you spray for a yield boost? Will you spray to supress or combat disease presence in the field? Or maybe you have no need for fungicides this season. Take the poll and let us know! Leave a comment with your county and state and what you're spraying for if you're going to apply fungicide this season.

Yes, I am spraying because of the threat of the disease and the spread of the diseases. But I am very afraid to use the chemicals on my corn plantation. But this spreading disease is very threatening. Thank you for the survey.

Corn at 3.50-4.50 makes no sense to spray if you are choosing the proper hybrids

As of now I have no need to spray. Stands are uneven and with the late spring and possibility of wet corn this fall I see no need to slow down maturity.

We had severe wind damage and small hail when corn was from knee to waist high, Kingbury Co. SD

Spraying because of disease pressure but also because our potential is better than it has been for awhile. Seeing a lot of morning fogs which lends itself to many diseases for corn and beans.

Can you really know in mid July if you will have disease in August, or even next week ? Do you wait til you have measles to get the shot ?
