Sedaxane, the SDHI active ingredient in Syngenta’s fungicide seed treatment Vibrance Duo, has now been accepted by the British Beer and Pub Association and Campden BRI for use on malting barley. Charlotte Cunningham reports. This acceptance is an important...

For 30 years, a farm in Somerset has carried out on-farm trials to find dependable varieties and fungicide programmes. CPM visits to find the same approach is now being applied to decision support tools. When a genuine step-up in chemistry comes along, you see the difference in...

UK spring wheat growers have a new seed treatment option for this season’s plantings, with news that the SDHI-based fungicide seed treatment, Vibrance Duo, has gained UK approval for the crop.
This adds to the list of cereal crops that the seed treatment can now be...
THE IMPORTANCE OF MULTI-SITES
History clearly tells us that single-site fungicides used without the addition of a multi-site can quickly succumb to resistance evolution. Alternative multi-sites such as folpet can be used to manage resistance and extend the life of existing chemistry.
So this year wasn't bad and didn't really show up loss of CTL. Going forward are there any EAMUs for existing products on the horizon or maybe possibly new products?
AFAIK I know current approved triazoles and strobs have limited effects on Choc spot. My hunch (and a quick google) is that...
We are going to cut some Planet spring barley today, the moisture was 12.5% yesterday so it’s pretty dry but there is a heck of a lot of regrowth.
We could end up with a lot of Green grains in the tank.
What’s the best thing to do with it?
Put on the floor in a heap and blow with cool air?
Any continuous wheat growers out there? What breed are you finding is the best for 3rd + wheats?
Run out of options for rotations, osr kaput, linseed seems a no no especially up here on clay,spring crops Ha Ha Ha,this year has shown once again the feutility of them here.😞
With the winter barley harvest under way has anyone given any thoughts as to which varieties to grow next year.
Around here they all seem to be equally as disappointing whether its hybrid, convention two or 6 row.
I'd also be intersted in which varieties have the best straw yield.
crops ok at the moment but with the heat getting up and a dry June forecast how does everyone think their crops will fare? will later drilled stuff stand a better chance if rain comes in july? will crops sown after muck ploughed in be able to draw moisture from that to keep them going...
Unusually cold this week. Another frost this morning, so at least 3 this week now.
Have T2 on wheat to do, T1 on SB and some beans to tidy up. All mixes containing a herbicide.
Anybody not applying with such low night temps?
I heard a snippet of news this morning on Radio 4 concerning something in todays Financial Times about the proposed trade agreement with the USA & a relaxation of standards to get the trade talks moving and in particular "agriculture ".Perhaps other forum members can put some meat on the bone on...
We've had our 4th ground frost during May. Question is, how will this affect septoria? Will it have been enough to kill the fungus? Added to that, it is also dry.
They were only light ground frosts, but each leaf was white with frost.
With the T2 spray timing for wheat crops rapidly approaching thoughts turn to providing adequate protection to the top two leaves to keep them clean and disease free.
T2 fungicide treatments are the most significant in terms of protecting final yields as it is this spray timing which provides...
Arable growers warned not to ditch multi-site fungicides as chlorothalonil deadline looms
With the final use-up date for chlorothalonil rapidly approaching, arable growers in the UK will need to switch to folpet to maintain effective protection against cereal diseases such as septoria in wheat...
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.
With resistance to single site fungicides making foliar diseases in wheat and barley increasingly difficult to control growers must use a multi-site fungicide such as folpet to provide effective protection and prolong the viability of azoles and SDHIs.
