Time the first application to coincide with disease onset as trials indicate yield potential is best protected where disease is prevented from becoming established

Maintain application rates at the full-label rate. Trials demonstrate that crops receiving two full-rate applications of Escolta do better as they are kept free of disease for longer

Ensure water volumes are sufficient to fully penetrate the canopy. Although likely to be less of an issue this season, experience tells us that all leaves and stems need to receive fungicide to keep disease at bay

Ensure intervals are kept to about 28 days. Trials demonstrate that where intervals are longer than about four weeks it allows disease to get back into the crop

Don’t mix fungicides, especially azoles, such as cyproconazole and epoxiconazole, as it is counter to resistance management guidelines
