With T3 applications quickly upon on us, The Wheat Team has come up with some factors to consider to make effective T3 applications.
Pest & Disease Management
With all this wet weather, disease concerns start to come into play, and protection against things like septoria, powdery mildew, and fusarium head blight become very important. As we look at providing that protection, proper application becomes critical.
Peter Johnson discusses how to tell when it’s time to spray for fusarium.
Fusarium head blight continues to be a major concern for North American farmers. Yield loss can be high and the amount of vomotoxin infection in the grain can cause significant grade loss.
It seems that the amount of pests that can have a negative impact on our wheat fields is never ending. Army worms can cause significant yield loss in a wheat crop and also impact neighboring crops like corn or canola as well.
In more humid climates, powdery mildew can have a real negative impact on your wheat crop. It is actually known as one of the easier diseases to spot but needs to be sprayed with fungicide to ensure proper control.
