The article stresses the importance of spraying T2 fungicide on a timely manner. Daily delay beyond the optimum T2 spray timing costs about 70 kilograms of grain a day in lost yield. Application specialist Tom Robinson says growers need to ensure they have the capacity to spray all their wheat area in a maximum of three days. Brown rust, yellow rust and septoria are the main disease threats at T2.
