Started T2 today on Extase and Siskin. 0.75l/ha of Revystar. Looking at the AHDB curves you need a lot of Ascra to do as well as Revystar at 50% rate on septoria. Raining every day here with it forecast to continue up to the weekend.

exstase T2 today. First dry day I had to get on it. 1 Lt lenvyor duo 0.5 Lt imperis. Ear is just starting to come out. Plenty of septoria in the lower leaves.

I think our T2 will be about a week away. Probably will work out ok as the weather isn’t settling down here until Tuesday anyway. Will see what our agronomist recommends. I must say that I don’t mind spending the money this year as the crops have some potential.


Yes, thats the options I'm looking at and not a huge difference.
Given that "here" we always do a robust T3 there may be an option to trim it a bit, but flag leaf wont be out here for a week and we have had a good amount of rain and crops are looking ok. What about adding Folpet?
Folpet will but you an extra 15% revystar, which is better? I went with the revystar




Is 0.75l/ha the go to rate of Revystar or does that include some “super folpet”
not in Shropshire!! us dry eastern boys will get away with that rate I believe :cool: .....however if wet June forecast then I will up 1.0 lt/ha. Still not sure what to do, we are quite lucky though aren't we as they are all good products, can nearly flip a coin
If next door are on at 0.75, and that sorts it this time but increase resistance, surely my 1lt is pointless as the weather just blows it all over the country anyway?

Lower rates are better for resistance management. Had the BASF rep on a recent NIAB call moaning about keeping rates up because of resistance. It's BS. The reverse is true. I confirmed with Bill Clark. I did 0.37l/ha topped up with teb for rust last year when the septoria disease pressure was low.
