Time it right - cereal growth stage update from the York site
Location - York
Date - 13.03.17
Winter Wheat plots at GS29. Septoria & Mildew, especially on susceptible varieties. We will continue to monitor this situation as the crop approaches the T0 timing (GS31) when leaf 4 is fully emerged, to ensure we're using the right mix of chemistry to protect against the key diseases.
Winter Barley is at GS30. T0 will be applied next week (20-24/03/17). Disease pressure is still quite low, but unlike wheat the lower leaves in barley contribute significantly to yield, so protecting these and keeping them as green as possible is vital to maxmising yield potential.
Due to start 14/03/17.
