The earliest-drilled wheat crops are approaching growth stage 30 and will soon require a T0 spray, which will be based on Bravo (chlorothalonil), with a small dose of rust-active triazole. Do nott exceed the four-week rule and time the T0 spray accordingly. Where further broad leaf weed control is required in oilseed rape, Galera/Shield must be applied before flower buds visible above crops.
