Control of net form net blotch in barley – fungicide trials locations

To evaluate fungicide efficacy against net form net blotch (NFNB) of barley and investigate application strategies for efficient control of the disease.

Key messages
  • Control of net form net blotch using effective fungicides resulted in yield increases of up to 1.0 t/ha compared to nil treatments.
  • Two strategic fungicide applications during early-mid growth stages (before end of August) – suppressed disease development and provided control comparable to four applications made every 2-4 weeks from early August.
  • Tilt, Amistar Xtra, Opera and Prosaro were effective for control of net form of net blotch.
