The article reports that agronomists and pesticide manufacturers are predicting widespread use of T3 ear sprays in wheat in 2008. But the focus will be on topping up foliar disease control rather than mycotoxin suppression, participants at a BASF round table discussion decided. JSR Farms would be applying an ear spray to all 1500 hectare wheat, regardless of whether it was for feed or seed, farms director Philip Huxtable said.
