Winter wheat leaf 4 emergence at Brewood trials site in Staffordshire

After last week’s cold snap and snow, encouraging signs are being seen at Syngenta’s trials site at Brewood in Staffordshire.

The winter wheat leaf 4 is about 75% emerged across the crop on the main stem. T0 spray applications will begin at the end of next week, weather-permitting.

 “It’s good to see the emergence of leaf 4 after last weekend’s snow, and we’re looking forward to starting the T0 applications after such frustrating weather-related setbacks.”
