Arable update

April is a busy month in the arable calendar with spring planting, T1’s, OSR flowering/pollen beetle etc.  Crops in the main look well and have responded well to early Nitrogen, late drilled crops have now received their herbicides and hopefully T0’s have been applied with catchy weather causing delays. 

T1 on Winter Wheat 

With a decline in Septoria curative activity the fungicide programme must take a much more preventative approach.  At the T1 timing we are targeting application to cover leaf 3 whilst balancing the timing so as not to stretch the interval between the T2 application, ideally this will be three weeks, if leaf development is delayed and this interval stretched, it may be necessary to apply an additional holding fungicide to keep Septoria and or Yellow rust at bay.  At the T1 timing it is also important to consider eyespot which can cause yield losses of 10-30%.  Wet soils and earlier drilled crops give a greater risk, products such as Kestrel, Helix and Boogie are amongst the best but it is important to note that even these will only give up to 60% control. 

OSR Sclerotinia Control 

This can be a yield devastating disease and HGCA trials consistently show increased yields from fungicide treatment of between 0.5t and 2t/ha.  Crops are now starting to flower and risk is increasing. Many crops have had Juventus or Kestrel for growth regulation and for light leaf spot control, this should provide some initial protection but more targeted control will be needed as flowering progresses.  As fungicide persistence is no than 3 weeks crops are likely to need up to two more following sprays to give effective control.  Priori Xtra, Kestrel and Filan, either alone or in mix are established amongst the most effective as a result of disease control and green leaf retention within the canopy. 

Agronomy meetings and e-mail updates 

Thank you to those who were able to make the Agronomy meetings in Hereford at the beginning of March, hopefully you found it useful and we will aim to do these at regular intervals throughout the season.  All are welcome to attend.  We send out regular e-mail bulletins with relevant environmental, legislation and business updates included.  If you wish to receive these please send us your e-mail address and we will add you to the list.  We will not share your information with any other party and you can remove yourself from the list at any time.
