Interaction of Nitrogen and Fungicide applications for Managing Yellow Spot and Stagonospora Nodorum in Wheat-on-Wheat cropping
RESULTS AND DISCUSSION
Plain text source:
Our aim was to investigate the interaction of nitrogen and fungicide in the control of yellow spot in wheat varieties of varying yellow spot resistance... The results of the trial suggest that nitrogen and fungicide are each effective on their own, and also in combination, for managing leaf spot diseases on susceptible wheat varieties... Nitrogen application increases the vigour of wheat plants and number of tillers and can increase yield and may allow for fungicide application to be more effective, particularly on susceptible wheat varieties...
