Winter Wheat

We're seeing lots of Septoria in lower leaves in most varieties at the site, and yellow rust is starting to get into the crop, thriving in the conditions of warm days and night dews:

As leaf 4 is fully emerged for Relflection, its T0 application was made today, including CHEROKEE with its triazole element to control rusts, and MODDUS to increase rooting for better anchorage, nutrient and water uptake and drought tolerance.

The blue paint is used as an indicator of spray timing - we'll be able to look back at this later in the season to decide whether the correct leaf was targeted with the T0 application:
