Management Guidance

  • Seed rate should target an even plat stand of 25-30 plants/m²in spring.
  • Ensure the Green Area Index is accurately determined at the start of spring growth to guide appropriate nitrogen rates for optimal canopy size.
  • A PGR at early green bub may be appropriate to reduce crop height.
