Crop rpotection for malting spring barley
COULD you discuss a crop protection programme for recently drilled malting spring barley?
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;
- 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
