View expert opinion on disease risk in wheat crops as T2 timing was reached in 2014

As we approach the T2 flag leaf fungicide spray timing in wheat, Dr Fiona Burnett, crop protection team leader at Scotland’s Rural College and acknowledged Septoria expert joined us for a tour of two Bayer CropScience trials sites in early May.

She, along with Bayer’s Adam Nears at Hinton Waldrist in Oxfordshire, and David Lines, an independent agronomist, at Callow, Herefordshire, looked at developing disease levels in important varieties at both sites and discussed what the implications were for disease management in 2014.
