Average total stem counts for sites treated with Headline® were 31% higher than untreated sites.
With the cold, wet spring and summer we are having, it is the perfect time to spray Headline® fungicide on your alfalfa. Headline is a fast acting, broad spectrum fungicide that delivers a high level of activity on more than 50 major diseases that can threaten yield and crop quality. We have seen tremendous yield increases over the past couple years using Headline; we also see higher quality feed as well.
Untreated plants vs. plants treated with Headline® fungicide.
Not only does Headline provide excellent disease control, it actually promotes improved plant health.
The unique chemistry of Headline enables more efficient nutrient uptake, more robust plant growth, and better stress tolerance to heat, hail, wind, and drought. Ultimately, this means healthier plants and higher yield potential.
Growers who have used Headline on their alfalfa report far less disease, more vigorous plant growth, higher stress tolerance, better standability, and, of course, higher yield — helping reduce losses and improve ROI.
To be more efficient you can also run Ascend, Micros, and your insecticide for leafhoppers, Alfalfa weevils, etc., at the same time, greatly improving the health and yield of your high dollar alfalfa field.
To learn more about the benefits of using Headline fungicide on your alfalfa fields, call any of the Agronomy locations of Allied Cooperative and talk to one of our agronomists soon.
