PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The Topguard® EQ Fungicide Corn and Soybean Performance Assurance program is designed to help growers realize the benefits of season-long disease control and plant performance enhancement with an application of Topguard EQ fungicide at a range of timings to meet their convenience demands. By combining a highly systemic, fast-acting strobilurin with the longest lasting triazole, Topguard EQ fungicide provides you with extended fungicide benefits in corn and soybeans.

If a Topguard EQ fungicide application made according to the recommendations below does NOT maintain commercially acceptable control – 85% reduction in severity vs. non-treated check – of labeled diseases for 30 days, FMC will provide the material’s cost up to original purchase price of Topguard EQ fungicide to be used toward the cost of retreatment with either Topguard EQ or Lucento® fungicides.
