Barley foliar disease trial locations

To assess the timing of fungicide application to determine the optimal time of application to minimise disease pressure and to assess the role of triticonazole as a seed dressing to minimise the affect of foliar diseases on barley.

Key messages
  • Both barley scald and leaf rust were observed at high levels in the trial this year. 
  • There were significant differences between the treatments with the best results obtained from the treatments with three separate applications. This equated with the levels of leaf disease in the plots. The plots with the highest levels of disease (and the lowest percentage of green leaf area) were generally the treatments with the lowest yield. 
  • For further discussion plese see the attached trial report.
