Management Guidance

  • Seed rate should target an even plant stand of 25-30 plants/m2 in spring.
  • Light Leaf Spot and Phoma should be monitored and treated as required.
  • Ensure the Green Area Index is accurately determined at the start of spring growth to guide appropriate nitrogen rates for optimal canopy size. Lodging risk with DK PLATINIUM is moderate.
