Ok... BASF rep and local co-op sales guy beating the back-roads claiming TwinLine actually increases yield (through benefit of Agcelence). Claims of 11 all the way up to 17 bushels yield bump just by applying to flag-leaf on Oats...
I told them "BULL****"
We grew 4000 acres of oats this year. We applied either Pivot, Caramba, or Folicur to 75% of the acres. We left multiple check strips and found only minor yield benefits just covering the cost. Across multiple, soil types, planting dates, fertility and varieties.
So tell me. Is or has TwinLine proven to be this miracle product for you?
Am I missing the boat?
The reason we have not used much TwinLine is the cost. Its double per acre what else im using. My personal experience is the cheaper the product (ie Pivot) the higher the return on investment, and more net $$$ in my pocket....
