To evaluate the effectiveness of different fungicide strategies for the management of blackspot disease infection in field pea to determine the most appropriate strategy for the southern low rainfall zone.
Grain yield of PBA Oura field pea was 400 kg/ha at Kimba, 2019, due to dry seasonal conditions. A foliar fungicide strategy is only recommended for crops that have a potential yield of at least 1.5 t/ha. However, it is not economic to apply fungicides in crops with grain yields below 1.5 t/ha.
