The article discusses the need for farmers in Great Britain to invest in backward wheat crops in order to ensure high yields. Growers are advised to maximize the use of fungicides to avoid plant disease problems experienced in 2012. Caution is also urged in the use of new-generation SDHI fungicides due to evidence that SDHI resistance has emerged in France and Germany.
