UK wheat prices have more than doubled in the past 12 months, meaning there is much more for growers to lose in getting their fungicide strategy wrong. Similarly, higher barley prices promise rich rewards for every extra tonne.
Last year was a low rust year, but this season could prove different with yellow rust already being reported in several UK cereal crops. Then it will prove imperative to react quickly and make the right product choices.
However, this year, growers have new chemistry in their amoury following the launch of two new SDHI fungicides.
This is why the March edition of Crops Digital is focusing on fungicides in its exclusive four interactive pages, sponsored by BASF. The interacive product guide will help you analyse the strengths and weaknesses of individual cereal fungicides.
Users can click on products in three categories – azoles, strobilurin/SDHI’s or other types of fungicides to bring up details of the active ingredients, their profile in wheat and barley, and tips on their use, in a panel on the right-hand page. We’ve asked two independent experts to offer their advice on the key options through video.
The next two pages focus on yellow rust looking at monitoring for rust in crops, the risk factors affecting incidence, such as previous cropping and nitrogen applications, and chemical control of the disease.
There never been more information at your fingertips to ensure you make the right fungicide choice this spring.
