RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C.-BASF shared early results from its evaluation of application technology as low as one gallon per acre (GPA) for Headline fungicide with attendees at the National Agricultural Aviation Association's national conference in December.

Early research results showed that Headline applied using as low as one GPA volumes provided yield and performance that was equal to that gained by using two GPA.

The authors emphasized that Headline applications in less than two GPA water volumes is not an EPA-registered use and such volumes should not be used for any crop.

In the tests, Headline applications were applied to corn, soybean and wheat. Evaluations of droplet size and distribution, coverage, disease control and grain yield of the tested crops were conducted.
