The article offers suggestions from fungicide expert Bill Clark on how to manage high yield crop. Clark believes that farmers can almost achieve their record yields by managing the canopy, allowing optimum moisture and nutrient uptake, and controlling diseases by optimising fungicide inputs. He says that some of the highest yielding varieties in the world are found in Great Britain, but there is a serious gap between the yields achieved on farm and in Recommended List trials
