Assessment of management options for yellow leaf spot locations

To evaluate the effect of the application of different trace elements and different stubble management on the incidence of yellow leaf spot in a wheat on wheat crop.

Key messages
  • Early application of foliar zinc at the 2-3 leaf stage and at a rate of 4kg/ha significantly reduced yellow leaf spot infection.
  • The 4 kg/ha zinc sulphate treatment also had higher tissue zinc (20.7ppm) but this was still marginal as were all other treatments.
  • No significant changes were observed in copper or manganese tissue concentrations across treatments.
  • Due to relatively low levels of infection the zinc or stubble treatments did not ultimately influence yield.
