We have used Revystar on Spring Barley at "paint brush" for ramularia and it is disappointing.
We used Adexar type (old stock) as a T2 on wheat and I thought we had too much septoria. My independent agronomist brought some plants from a neighbour who had used Revystar (same variety) and it was...
nearly may and yet to use a fungicide, crops spotless clean
cold, dry - could this be the first year we don’t use this group of chemicals at all ?
rain could change things yet but it will need to be significant now to rebalance smd’s
anyone else not applied a fungicide to wheat or barley...
Have used 0.5l/ha Jaunt (Fluoxastrobin(75g/l) Prothioconazole(150g/l)
Trifloxystrobin(75g/l)) the last couple of years with good results( have both been very dry springs with low levels of disease). With the loss of CTL what are people using this year?
I usually buy an IBC of Manganese every year and lash a bit on with the sprayer. I've done tissue tests in the past because I felt they were relatively dear and I wasn't gaining a lot. But I still use the manganese for the barley even though I'm not sure its any measurable difference.
Given the late drilling date and the amount of rain that’s gone on them I’m pleasantly pleased with the state of my crops.
I do have two small fields that are below par but most are looking well.
How are others looking?
Wheat and barley below, no rape this year but locally it looks well.
Is anybody going to use Revystar at T2, would a low rate work as well as a good rate of the slightly older chemistry if you spend the same ££.
My best wheat is Extase, so Revysol would be a bit OTT, but I have got a decent block of Crusoe which might benefit.
Unless I've missed it, surprised this discussion hasn't started. Just about to start our earliest wheat. Have mid October Extase and Zyatt to do. Was planning CTL + epoxi, but now next week is looking wetter, do I drop some Imtrex in to make it up to equivalent of 0.8l/ha of Adexar?

UK farmers have accused the EU of banning fungicide products based on epoxiconazole for political reasons.
The Chemicals Regulation Division (CRD) – the body responsible for the regulation of biocides, pesticides, detergents, chemicals in the UK – confirmed the...
Could you run a farm scale trial in 2018?
We as farmers are constantly being told about trial results, but as they say, there is nothing like trying things yourself on your own farm. Many of you out there are indeed already doing this, but what we would like to see is people sharing these...
