Changing The Way We Tackle Foliar Disease Control In Silage Corn

Read the entire report from

our technical services team


In the Southeast, where high disease pressure is the norm, disease control is critical to producing a high yielding silage crop. Xyway LFR® fungicide is the first and only fungicide that can be applied at planting that provides season-long foliar disease protection. Applying the fungicide at plant saves time and hassle while ensuring the plant is protected before yield-robbing diseases show up in the field.

Benefits of Xyway LFR Fungicide

  • Convenience - at plant application saves time and application costs.
  • Application consistency – applied to the soil and taken up by the roots to provide complete inside-out protection from diseases.
  • Proven efficacy - provides disease protection and yields equivalent to foliar fungicide applications.
  • Excellent control of silage corn diseases - Southern corn leaf blight, Northern corn leaf blight, grey leaf spot.
  • Less trips across the field – can replace an aerial VT/R1 or early-season fungicide spray.
  • Healthier plants – start the season strong with healthy roots, stalks and foliage, enabling the plant to withstand stress better throughout the season.
