CPM Research Briefing - Green Fields deliver more from OSR
CPM Editor, Tom Allen Stevens, reports on how maximising pod potential is the key to building yield in oilseed rape, and why applying Amistar to the crop at flowering gives it every chance to achieve it.
“An application of Amistar at yellow bud to early flowering is the best timing to prolong the green leaf area," advises James.
"But recently, sclerotinia pressure has tended to increase later in the season with applications at mid flowering giving the best disease control.
“You’ll still get the greening effect at the later timing, although to a lesser degree on leaves. Field trials have shown the improved plant health it brings also helps combat the effects of verticillium wilt.”
