Aims

To compare the effectiveness of foliar fungicides and fungicidal seed dressings applied at 4 node stage to control ascochyta blight in field pea.

Key messages

Seed dressings were more effective at controlling the mild infections in Hart while seed dressings or foliar fungicides were not effective in controlling the severe infection levels in Minnipa. Seed dressing is more effective than foliar sprays for low to moderate disease severity, but for severe disease conditions both were less effective.
