Consider rhizoctonia seed treatments to boost cereal yields.. Daniel says the take home messages from the trials are that in-furrow banding of fungicide 2-3cm below the seed can provide protection to crop seminal roots and surface banding behind the press wheel can protect the crown roots... Daniel says there are some promising fungicide banding treatment options for rhizoctonia in the pipeline that performed well in the trials...

Dr Miles said although preliminary results suggested that insecticide treatments at sowing could potentially provide some crop protection, it was also probable that the insecticides would deter larvae from the zone in which they are active but as roots grow out of the treated zone they could then be damaged by larvae... "It is also possible that the use of seed or in-furrow treatments will have little longer term effect on the density of the population, essentially locking growers into a program of using these treatments to ensure a crop," she said... "Techniques for evaluating the efficacy of seed dressings, in-furrow treatments and possibly side-dressed insecticides are under development which will allow for evaluation at different times post-application to test the longevity of the treatments and their potential toxicity to scarab larvae."..
