The article encourages oilseed rape growers to apply early to mid-flowering fungicides to prevent the risk of sclerotinia as rotations tighten in Great Britain. Germination of the fruiting bodies which produce infective spores from the soil-borne resting sclerotia has risen. Treatment helps prevent the disease building up in the soil as a threat to future crops such as peas, potatoes and carrots. Given that some fungicides, such as Amistar or azoxystrobin and Filan or boscalid, also offer physiological greening effects which can boost output, treatment is well worth considering.
