Preventative leaf rust trial locations

To identify whether spraying for leaf rust in wheat will give an economic yield benefit.

Key messages
  • All treatments gave higher yields than the control, where no fungicide was applied.
  • Despite the lack of replication, it would appear that Impact at 500 mL/ha gave an increased yield by comparison to the control.
  • A yield advantage of 1633 kg/ha would certainly more than pay for the cost of the treatment.
  • For further conclusions, please see the attached trial report.
