Ontario winter wheat growers are crossing their fingers and holding their breath as a potential record crop heads into its final weeks of grain fill and approaches harvest. RealAgriculture agronomist Peter Johnson says a key yield indicator he’s been watching is the number of seeds at each spikelet. He notes that growers have been sharing… Read More

Farmers across Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba have access to a new risk mapping tool for assessing fusarium head blight (FHB), fusarium damaged kernels, and deoxynivalenol (DON) risk levels in spring wheat, winter wheat, barley and durum based on weather conditions. The weather-based risk is calculated using real-time weather data from more than 500 stations operated… Read More

Starting in May, Prairie farmers will have access to an up-to-the-day fusarium head blight forecasting tool for winter and spring wheat, durum, and barley. The new forecasting tool is based on over five years of research and field-level proof-of-concept work supported by Alberta Grains, SaskWheat, SaskBarley, the Manitoba Crop Alliance, the University of Manitoba and… Read More

There’s plenty of research data that shows applying a T3 fungicide to winter wheat will deliver a yield benefit, even in a dry growing season. RealAgriculture agronomist Peter Johnson says dry growing conditions tend to drive down fusarium head blight and other disease pressure, resulting in less yield loss, but the fungicides also increase the… Read More

It’s been a dry spring in Ontario and many growers are asking whether it makes sense to invest in a T3 fungicide for winter wheat. On this episode of the RealAgriculture Wheat School, resident agronomist Peter Johnson notes that across the province, the crop has received below-average rainfall and the potential for yield-robbing fusarium head… Read More

Multimodes of action in one product is the name of the game for many new crop protection products, and BASF’s new line up for 2023 holds to that. Building on last year’s launch of Veltyma fungicide, growers in Ontario can look for Veltyma DLX in 2023 for protection from northern corn leaf blight, tar spot,… Read More

Fungicides can deliver a strong defence against fusarium head blight (FHB) in wheat, but how the product is applied in-crop plays a key role in determining whether growers successfully protect those valuable wheat heads. On this episode of the RealAgriculture Wheat School, Syngenta agronomist Brad Garlough shares fusarium application insights and best practices accumulated from… Read More

Should Ontario winter wheat growers apply a T3 fungicide to protect the crop from fusarium infection? That’s the question RealAgriculture’s Bernard Tobin and University of Guelph associate professor Dave Hooker tackle on this episode of the Wheat School. When it comes to yield response, extensive research conducted by Hooker and his colleagues indicate that, on average,… Read More

Will nozzle type solve the problem of getting efficacy while spraying T3 fungicides? There’s plenty of work done on the right nozzle for this job, but what are the other factors that lead to an efficacious application for controlling fusarium? In this Wheat School episode, our resident agronomist Peter “Wheat Pete” Johnson is fired up… Read More

Bayer has announced the registration of a new product called TilMOR, a replacement for Folicur EW in its cereal fungicide portfolio. The new product is registered for use on wheat, barley, and oats, and can be applied from flag leaf to heading stages, to control leaf disease and suppress fusarium head blight. “For cereal growers,… Read More
