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...

The experiments are run over 4 years to test the water use efficiency, productivity and riskiness of: (i) a range of continuous cereal systems and the decisions around inputs, timing and agronomy; and (ii) potential break crop systems; across soils of differing potentials... Comparison with the non N-limiting yield potential estimated using the APSIM model of 5.05 t/ha in the swale, 6.06 t/ha in the mid-slope and 5.12 t/ha in the dune, suggests the actual yields are very close to potential yield in the wheat following pasture in the swale but well below for all treatments in the dune and mid-slope (Figure 3)... A build-up of fertility in the swale where fertilizer applications have been uniform across soil types in the past and the swales have under-performed in the dry years has meant that N was not limiting in this soil type and potential yield was attainable in the wheat following pasture where a disease break had been provided...
