Foliar nutritionals are by no means a way to replace sound soil fertility, but they can enhance the plant’s ability to use readily available nutrients at peak uptake to help produce a top crop. When put to the test, Gold Advantage Trend-B has delivered proven results.
MFA agronomists have conducted replicated research studies and on-farm trials across multiple years to measure the yield-boosting advantages of Trend-B when applied with and without fungicide. The results demonstrate the value of fungicides and added benefits of Trend-B.
In 2020, a large-scale farm trial on corn performed by MFA saw an increase of 10-plus bushels per acre from a fungicide application. The field was also split with an application of fungicide with Trend-B, which resulted in an additional 4 bushels per acre on this trial.
The chart shows the results of three years of corn research at performed at MFA Agronomy Training Camp in Boonville, Missouri. The studies compared an untreated check to plots applied with Trivapro fungicide and plots applied with Trivapro plus Trend-B. The data shows a 14-bushel advantage increase using fungicide and another 10 bushels on top of that with the addition of Trend-B added.
Proper timing is critical to get the most out of application of Trend-B or other Gold Advantage foliar nutrition products. Talk with your MFA agronomy experts about the opportunity to improve your crop’s health and increase yields by combining fungicides with foliar nutrition.
