If CTL was introduced as a new product now..


Arable Farmer
I think it was a very good tool for spreading the resistance risk and as a building block for fungicide strategies. Without it feels very exposed to highly active but likely very quick to break down fungicides. Definitely not as valuable as a new SDHI but definitely will be missed in a high pressure year.

What would you be prepared to pay for it?

And do you think it would be considered as valuable as the newest SDHI?
More than likely you will be paying more for its replacement in most fungicide programes Folpet . Around as long as ctl but trials at Oak park indiciate that while it is a help its not in the same league as ctl especially on ramularia on Spring barley .

Nothing - it does not meet modern standards for protecting the environment and health. The world moves on, other control measures will be developed, and one day we will be amazed we used so much fungicide just like we are amazed those crazy fools used to use aldrin, carbendazim, DDT, malathion, organotins and so on.

We are in the last days of pesticides - it won't be easy but the world won't end either.


Agree-was definitely reducing in its inclusion on wheat at the price it got to. Likewise agree for beans and ramularia though.
