XYWAY BRAND FUNGICIDES’ BENEFITS

Xyway 3D fungicide and Xyway LFR® fungicide revolutionize how growers approach disease management by providing season-long foliar disease protection from an at-plant application, equivalent to a traditional VT/R1 fungicide application. Applying Xyway brand fungicides at-planting provides season-long disease protection against some of the most yield-damaging leaf spot diseases like gray leaf spot, Northern corn leaf blight, Southern corn leaf blight and others, in  addition to benefits of improved stalk and root health, standability and stay green.

Combining the features of Xyway brand fungicides with the disease protection of a foliar application of Lucento® fungicide or Topguard® EQ fungicide helps to manage very heavy infestations or tough, late-season diseases like Southern rust or tar spot that a single VT-R1 foliar application can miss. A combination, two-step approach of a Xyway brand fungicide applied at planting followed by a foliar application after pollination may be the right fit for some corn production situations or diseases. With the combination of both of these products features, FMC is confident that utilizing both Xyway fungicide followed by either Lucento fungicide or Topguard EQ fungicide can optimize in-season disease defense in order to help maximize yield protection and grower return on investment.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Includes field corn – grown for grain or silage, popcorn and excludes seed corn and sweet corn.

Step 1: Apply Xyway 3D fungicide or Xyway LFR fungicide at the rates specified below at-planting. The use rate of Xyway 3D fungicide or Xyway LFR fungicide is dependent on which foliar fungicide is being used as a foliar product.

Step 2: Follow the Xyway 3D fungicide or Xyway LFR fungicide application with either Lucento fungicide or Topguard EQ fungicide at 5.0 fl. oz./A at VT-R3 stage corn.

If this two-step program does not provide commercially acceptable disease control i.e., maximum of 10% leaf area disease infection of the corn plant from the ear leaf and above on 50% of the plants through R4 (prior to dent) stage of labeled foliar diseases, FMC will provide up to $15/A for an additional fungicide in high-disease environments to maintain disease protection.

  • For Xyway 3D fungicide applications, follow the directions for proper 3RIVE 3D® applications.

 

PROGRAM QUALIFICATIONS

  • Xyway 3D fungicide or Xyway LFR® fungicide must be applied in-furrow, or near the row in a 2x2, or dual placement 2x2 or similar-type soil application at planting time at rates specified above. Reduced or rates below recommendations are not covered under this assurance program.
  • Only diseases listed in the assurance program above are eligible for coverage under this assurance program. Late planted or corn planted after the local full insurance planting deadline date is not eligible for this program.
  • A reduction of 85% or less in disease severity will be based on evaluation of the average reduction in disease levels of the whole plant and overall improvement of health across the entire plant.
  • To make a claim under this assurance program, the need for a rescue foliar application of a fungicide must be verified and made with documentation the application was made. If the decision that no additional foliar application is made, no claim/payment can be made under this assurance program.
  • An authorized FMC representative must be notified of a claim prior to the established deadline and have a reasonable opportunity to inspect the field prior to a foliar fungicide application being made. The authorized FMC representative must confirm the inadequate performance of the two-step program – Xyway 3D fungicide or Xyway LFR fungicide followed by the Lucento® fungicide or Topguard® EQ fungicide – before any claim can be made under this program. Action taken without prior FMC knowledge or opportunity to inspect the field(s) in question will not be eligible for payment under this program.

 

Treated vs. Untreated Comparison Requirements
*An untreated strip/check area representative of the field must be available for comparison to determine the level of performance of the Xyway 3D fungicide or Xyway LFR fungicide application. The treated and untreated check comparisons must be located within the same field. Comparisons to fields located elsewhere on the farm or area are not considered a valid comparison. The untreated check area cannot have any foliar fungicides applied during the program period in order to maintain a useful comparison. All other agronomic factors must be the same in both the untreated check and treated areas, including but not limited to fertility programs, irrigation, soil type and corn hybrid.

PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS

  1. A representative check strip or area is required for comparison to determine the level of performance of the Xyway brand fungicide application. A side-by-side comparison in the same field is the best to maintain similar topography, soil type and agronomic conditions for accurate comparison.
  2. Use identical seed varieties/hybrids, fertility, tillage, seeding rate and weed control programs in all comparison check strips.
  3. Products must be applied according to label use directions.

Program Period: January 1, 2022 to September 15, 2022
Program Geography: U.S. states where Xyway 3D fungicide, Xyway LFR fungicide, Lucento fungicide and Topguard EQ fungicide are labeled.
