Extase potential problems

My extase was treated with the same fungicide program as all the other varieties, t0, through t3 all very robust due to area, serviced agronomy, large spend, it just broke down.
Same here.

Keeping greener longer makes it an easy target for a late wet weather foliar disease here - I'm only calling it septoria nodorum because that's what we've always called it.

I have had too leave extase straw down drying two days longer then other varieties, at the point the combine has cut it off it's still green.

Most of our wheats haven't had any fungicide this year, looking good so far.
Happy to have jumped off the hamster wheel.
Crusoe and Extase. We are treating them with nutrients etc and watching closely.
I don't know if direct drilling has helped, though of course I hope it has. I'm working on the principle that healthy crops should be able to see off disease. An agonomist who looked at them last week reckoned they'll do 8.5 tonnes/ha , which is good for us. Many a slip between cup and lip, mind...

@martian how did the no fungicide Extase yield in he end?

Verydor XE and I can’t remember if it was Presite SX or Zypar for the Fat Hen.
The Verydor was the only fungicide it had all season at a litre/ha

Thank you for the reply. Fat Hen is a strength of Zypar. Cheap crop to grow. Cheers.

Looked a cracking crop of wheat from picture through combine cab window.

About 6t/ha...everything looked brilliant until the weather changed

Did well here. Below average fungicide applications. Later drilled in to a horrible seedbed after the last Sugarbeet crop. (Land is really too heavy for root crops).

Hi, I note from the original thread you had Crusoe and Extase. Your 6 t/ha does that relate to just fields that had no fungicide? Or your whole farm average? And if whole farm did you not apply fungicide too any of your crops. Am being nosy, so apologies. Reply only if you wish to. Cheers.

Interesting to note that Scottish growers were advised in Autumn 2020 to take care with variety Extase due to potential issue with ear sterility if grown in northern Scotland. Any Scottish folk with any comment?

Every variety that has had a major flaw show up in field has had enthusiasts persevere another year. We’re in a run of cooler springs with more late frosts, until the sun spot cycle picks up or global warming happens🤣.
Don’t go near it, I’m embarrassed for KWS and their promotion of Extase given the widespread murmurs of problems. Obviously 90% of farmers unbelievably pay no credence to idle chatter on forums.
I can get sh!t yields without any seed breeders help, why add the risk?
 
I hope anyone planting this year doesn't Google this site next harvest after a cold spring to read how big the problem is after believing the breeders statement of a "handful of cases" on Facebook.

Update on the Sustainable Farming Incentive pilot

Written by Lisa Applin

In July, we opened the applications window for farmers to join our Sustainable Farming Incentive pilot.

The Sustainable Farming Incentive is 1 of the 3 new environmental land management schemes. It sits alongside the future Local Nature Recovery and Landscape Recovery schemes.

Through the Sustainable Farming Incentive, farmers will be paid for environmentally sustainable actions – ones that are simple to do and do not require previous agri-environment scheme experience.

We are piloting the scheme to...
