The article examines plans on farms as application of T1 fungicides to wheat starts in Great Britain. According to agronomist Howard Moore of Troy Stuart, the herbicides will be based around chlorothalonil and Proline for its strengths on septoria and eyespot. Another agronomist, Nigel Foster, notes that early application of such agricultural chemicals could leave crops unprotected. Eric Anderson of Scottish Agronomy says that one objective of the T1 will be to treat eyespot.
