Forward crops and mild weather are creating the ideal conditions for disease to spread rapidly in winter cereals this spring making fungicide programmes even more important.
Autumn-sown cereals are generally looking well across the country and have a good yield potential so keeping disease out of these promising crops will be key.
As we approach the key fungicide application period in winter wheat and barley, Farmers Weekly wants to know what products will be in your sprayer tank this spring.
Will you be investing in the most effective new generation SDHI-containing products according to the HGCA fungicide efficacy trials, despite the drop in grain prices?
If so, will you use one twice at both T1 and T2? Will you use a strobilurin or a multi-site active ingredient such as chlorothalonil and if so, where in your programme?
In winter barley, we also want to know how you will use the latest SDHI chemistry after recent news that BASF’s Adexar is now approved for use in malting barley crops.
Please fill in our short survey (below) and help us get a picture of how you will be protecting your crops this spring.
We will publish the results in our Fungicide Special in Farmers Weekly magazine on 16 March.
