Economic Evaluation of Soybean Fungicide Seed Treatments

The effect of nine different fungicide seed treatments for soybeans were tested from 2004 to 2007 at Keiser, Stuttgart, and Hope, Arkansas. While seedling emergence was effective across all treatments, only three treatments showed statistically significant differences in partial returns, defined as gross revenue minus seed and seed treatment costs. Comparisons of the regret a producer would experience as a result of non-optimal seed treatment suggested that broad spectrum seed treatment could enhance profitability by an average of $32 per acre with similar treatment recommendations across a range of seeding rates, output prices and study conditions.
