Manage Your Seed To Its Full Potential

Use response-to scores to dial-in on plant needs
What do your crops need to maximize their yield potential? Obviously, there are the basics like sunlight, water, and nutrients, but there’s more than that to consider. For example, weed control, disease management, and planting populations also contribute to a crop’s health and, ultimately, its yield potential.
Unfortunately, there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to optimizing a crop’s productivity.
That's why understanding how your crops will respond to various management practices, including fungicide applications, is valuable. Data from the 2019 Answer Plot® program showed an average 5.6- to 40.4-bushel-per-acre yield response to fungicide applications, depending on the hybrid.
Understanding a hybrid’s response-to score can help you better manage your seed, which allows you to allocate your crop inputs budget more precisely.
