New fungicides to tackle Rhizoctonia.. Paul Bogacki (left) from SARDI and Jack Desbiolles from the University of South Australia, discuss the plot layout for the Rhizoctonia fungicide trial, which has included surface, seed and deep placement of the fungicide... Research results indicate the risk of Rhizoctonia damage will be reduced for: cereals following grass-free canola, pulses and pastures; crops with rapid early root growth down the soil profile - consider sowing early with soil disturbance below the seed, deep band nitrogen and new fungicide seed dressings; and registered fungicide seed dressings used in paddocks with low to moderate levels of Rhizoctonia..
