How to identify leaf three in winter wheat in 30 seconds

Richard Cromie, an independent agronomist, talks through how to identify the emergence of leaf 3 in wheat which is critical for the accurate application of T1's

Richard Cromie shows how to identify leaf three for fungicide timings:

  • To identify leaves
  • Cut one layer at a time
  • Carefully peel back leaves
  • Discard outer leaves
  • Unroll all leaves to reveal the ear inside
  • Notice the leaf three must be fully emerged before T1 spraying
