Headline® Voted Fungicide of the Year

March 23, 2007 04:44 PM


FEBRUARY 2007 – When readers of No-Till Farmer were asked which fungicide made the biggest contribution to their success in reducing tillage in 2006, Headline® fungicide was the clear answer. Readers selected Headline as the Fungicide of the Year for effectively controlling disease in both no-till corn and soybeans, reporting that Headline® treated plants expend less energy trying to cope with the stress from dealing with foliar leaf diseases. In total, 114 products were nominated in seven different categories, including fungicides.


BASF is honored that Headline® was chosen as the Fungicide of the Year among No-Till Farmer readers in its 2007 Conservation Tillage Product Guide. Readers commented on the strong protection offered by Headline®, the yield advantages and foliar disease control. The results show that an increasing number of growers are beginning to see that using Headline® is an essential part of any program.


In 2006, in more than 1000 on-farm corn trials and 750 on-farm soybean trials, Headline® produced consistently higher yields and positive returns on investment. The average yield advantage of Headline treated corn ranged from 12 to 15 bu/A, while Headline® treated soybean trials showed a 4 to 8 bu/A advantage. It’s clear: Headline® helps growers to get the most out of what they put in the ground.

The 2006 No-Till Products of the Year were honored during the 15th annual National No-Tillage Conference in January.
