Evaluate newly registered seed treatments for loose smut and rhizoctonia in Hindmarsh barley locations
  • To compare EverGol Prime, Vibrance and Tripower to Baytan T for loose smut control.
  • To compare EverGol Prime compared to triazole seed treatments for rhizoctonia suppression.
Key messages
  • All treatments met Hindmarsh food grade parameters although loose smut was not tested for, which may have excluded the untreated from delivery due to its levels of infection.
  • There was no significant difference in yield between treatments.
