Bayer has released results from 500 DelaroTM field trials which took place in 20 states. Across two years of trials, Delaro averaged a 12 to 18 bushel-per-acre increase in corn and a four to five bushel-per-acre increase in soybeans compared to an untreated check. In these trials, Delaro had a 90 percent win rate over the untreated check.
The recent Bayer AgVocacy Forum and Commodity Classic allowed us to talk with growers who participated in these field trials and have seen the results first-hand. Beau Morris, grower from Stewardson, Ill., said the results convinced him to use Delaro again for the 2018 crop year. “I saw an eight bushel per acre increase with Delaro on soybeans, compared to untreated acres,” said Morris. “That’s huge in soybeans. During the season you could see a noticeable difference in the areas treated with Delaro. The plants were much greener, and we didn’t have the dropped leaves or pods we had in the untreated acres. Honestly, Delaro is my preferred soybean fungicide right now.”
Randy Myers, product development manager, Bayer CropScience, said Delaro performed consistently in the trials. “The 90 percent win rate Delaro has over the untreated check is a great illustration of the consistent performance Delaro provides,” Myers said. “In fact, across weather conditions and geographies, this is the highest win rate I have seen on corn and soybeans in my 30-plus years in the industry.”
