Fluid delivery systems and fungicides in wheat locations

To test the benefits of fluid delivery systems in relation to the effects of trace elements, macro nutrients and fungicides on control of cereal root and leaf diseases and grain yield.

Key messages
  • Application of trace element (Mn,Cu, Zn) mix or manganese did not improve yield at the two sites.
  • Application at sowing of fungicide with the separate (split) addition of 40kg/ha urea reduced Rhizoctonia seminal root infection at both sites.
  • Phosphoric acid resulted in higher yields than granular P in two of the three years of the trial at the highly calcareous site (Streaky Bay) but not in the wet year; whereas at the other site (Waramboo) on the red sandy loam there was a small yield response in the wet year.
