Agronomic systems to improve profitability of wheat on wheat through disease and nutrition management at Binnu locations
Aims

Determine the value of nitrogenand fungicide on the profitability of new wheat varieties with different disease resistances in wheat on wheat system.

Key messages
  • In 2013 in Binnu , Mace was the highest yielding variety what sown on wheat stubble.
  • Nitrogen application didn't influence grain yield (t/ha) but did influence protein and grain weight (kg/hL).
  • Fungicide application reduced disease levels, which resulted in yield increases.
  • Adequate nitrogen is not an alternative to fungicide but an additional measure to make plants less vulnerable to disease.
