The article reports on the need for higher doses of triazole fungicides of wheat flag leaf sprays in order to control an increased threat from Septoria tritici in Great Britain. Spread of Septoria has been assisted by warm and wet weather according to UAP technical director Chris Bean. The spraying capacity of a farm and whether the crop was for feed or milling markets are cited as the factors in switching to a combined flag and ear spray strategy.
