The article presents the results of a study which examines the profitability of a low-cost foliar fungicide on commercially grown soft red winter wheat (SSWW) varieties in Northeast Texas. It reveals that fungicide do not offer a positive return on investment unless foliar plant diseases are moderate to high are present such as stripe rust, glume blotch, leaf rust. Also, it shows that fungicide application depends on the types of crop varieties grown as they produce different level of responses.
