Recommendations for T1


  • Effective and flexible Septoria control at T1
  • Built in resistance management with >75% azole dose and multisite compatibility
  • Good control of yellow rust, mildew, eyespot and fusarium inoculum
  • Superior Leafshield formulation gives the best spread ability and drying time – Aviator is rainfast in minutes

Septoria tritici

  • A treatment of chlorothalonil at T0 will reduce inoculum spreading onto leaf 3
  • Look at the varietal resistance ratings, those rated >6.5 and drilled later may not need an SDHI at T1
  • Consider the drilling date, early drilled crops will be at higher risk than their varietal resistance rating indicates
  • Ensure that you have the correct sprayer capacity to match the allotted approach, Proline275 + CTL can work well but only if timed perfectly.

Yellow Rust

  • Plan T0 applications no earlier than four weeks before the estimated T1 timing.
  • Pay attention to the varietal resistance ratings, these will provide a good indication of risk, however new races appear with increasing frequency so monitor all varieties
  • Most fungicides will provide good control of yellow rust, however timing is critical. If sprays are delayed and yellow rust is visible on the leaf then the addition of a strobilurin for quick knock down may be necessary.


  • Later drilled crops going through rapid spring growth can be at particular risk
  • High seed rates and nutrient rich soils are more at risk, as dense crop canopies and high concentrations of nitrogen will encourage mildew to proliferate
  • Azole choice at T1 will greatly influence control, with prothioconazole being the only azole with good activity
  • 1 L/ha of Aviator contains an 80% dose of PTZ and will provide excellent protection.


  • If it has been cold and wet in the build up to T1, the risk may be high - eyespot favours cold, wet soils with high concentrations of nitrogen
  • Look at the varietal ratings, generally resistance in the current recommended list is low. Some of the varieties more resistant to foliar disease have a weakness on eyespot
  • Azole choice at T1 can have a significant impact on eyespot – 150g/ha of prothioconazole will provide good control.
  • 1 L/ha Aviator contains and 80% dose of PTZ and bixafen, both of which are active on eyespot.

Fusarium & Microdochium

  • An appropriate seed treatment such as Redigo Pro can help reduce foot rot infections in the autumn
  • The disease will proliferate in the build up to T1 in warm dry conditions. Control at T1 and T2 can help ensure less inoculum to infect the ear at T3
  • Using prothioconazole at T1 will help reduce infection and inoculum.
