The author discusses his 2008 crop protection programmes for his farms in Yorkshire, England. He mentions that delayed nitrogen applications stand as the focus of the programme while controlling Septoria tritici throughout the season is his main goal. He notes that he does not believe that higher doses of T0 fungicides will be beneficial this year. He states that an alternative approach for crop nutrition involves the use of phosphite to complement fungicide usage interests.
