Assessing fungicides for controlling barley foliar disease locations

To compare the performance of a number of foliar fungicides in barley. 

Key messages
  • This trial was infected with a reasonable level of leaf rust and all treatments yielded higher than the untreated.  The Amistar Xtra and Tilt Turbo treatments both yielded significantly higher than the control. When considering grain quality, Tilt turbo was best overall with significantly lower screenings.
