An evaluation of foliar applied fungicides for control of diseases of alfalfa was implemented in Wisconsin in 2014. This work is a continuation of fungicide evaluation that has been ongoing since 2011.  Dry matter yield was significantly higher than the non-treated check for all plots that received fungicide. Added value was not significantly different from the non-treated control for all plots that received fungicide. While there was an average yield increase when fungicide was used for this cutting, significant added value over the non-treated control was not observed when fungicide was applied. Phytotoxicity was not observed with any treatment.
