The article states all crops have received their first sprays and look good. The retriever winter barley has really benefited from the nitrogen and sulphur it received in March. The sprayer will be back in the field before the second week of April applying the crop's first fungicide. It will be a Proline + Jenton + Bravo mix to control mildew and rhynchosporium. It is hoped that the weather relents and the crop gets sprayed at the right timing.
