Has it been quite a wet May across the U.K.?

If there is Septoria down on leaf 4 and you’ve had a couple of wet weeks running up to now then I for one would be using one of the new actives and not holding back on the rate.
In the absence of CTL I think the triazoles & SDHI’s have become very weak on Septoria unless you have them on before the spores land on the leaf. If you’ve had plenty of recent rain then the spores from leaf 4 are already on leaf 2 and the flag.

The combination of wet, weakened old chemistry and good wheat prices make it a no brainer to me.
