Management Guide

  • Seed rate should target an even plant stand of 25-30 plants/m2 in spring.
  • 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 EXSTAR is low.
  • Light Leaf Spot should be monitored but strong resistance reduces the risk of severe infections.
