The Home Grown Cereals Authority has updated its ‘Wheat Disease Management Guide’ for 2006.

The online guide, originally produced in 2000, provides advice for farmers and advisors on all aspects of managing key root, stem, foliar and ear diseases, including how to recognise them, risk assessment and fungicide control.

Guidance on choosing optimum fungicide dose, implications for resistance management and a product decision guide for different spray timings (T0-T3) is also included.
