  • To assess the use of fungicides for the control of blackspot (ascochyta blight) and effect on yield in field pea.
Key messages
  • The risk of blackspot is influenced by many factors of which seasonal conditions play a significant role in disease outbreak as was observed in this trial.
  • Fungicide use to control blackspot is one of the strategies to minimise the disease.
  • Although there was no effect of fungicide treatment on yield, previous trials have shown that crops sown into high blackspot risk and with a high yield potential can benefit from a fungicide strategy of P-Pickel T seed dressing combined with a mancozeb spray at 9 nodes growth stage followed by a second spray at early flowering.
