Does the Application of a Plant Growth Regulator and Fungicide Increase Oat Yield

In an Oat Shock:

  • The addition of Palisade PGR and Trivapro fungicide increased oat yield and reduced lodging
  • Increased N rate above those recommended in A2809 did not increase oat yield
  • Growers should explore expected ROI and apply BMP’s prior to adding any additional inputs

A research trial was initiated in the spring of 2017 at the Arlington Agricultural Research Station, Arlington, WI to assess the impact of a plant growth regulator (PGR) (Palisade, trinexapac-ethyl, Syngenta) and a foliar fungicide (Trivapro, benzovindiflupyr+azoxystrobin+propiconazole, Syngenta) in oats.
