Crop rpotection for malting spring barley

COULD you discuss a crop protection programme for recently drilled malting spring barley?

  • James F Lewis


    BOOKS have been written on the subject.

    It is far too open a question to give a specific response because clearly managing your spring barley crop rests on several factors:

    • Soil type;
    • Variety;
    • Local weed, disease and pest pressures
    I suggest you look in the archives at the following Crops articles:
    • Spring barley teach-in, p12, 27 March. 1999;
    • Spring barley malting challenge winner, p24, 3 February, 2001
