HGCA's Barley disease management guide 2012
GS53 HGCA Barley Disease Management Guide 2012
Many diseases challenge the yield, quality and profitability of barley and so need to be controlled effectively.
In the UK, barley crops range from September-sown six-row feed varieties to spring-sown two-row varieties for malting. Regardless of variety, sowing date, location or market, disease management in barley aims to maximise grain numbers by protecting tillering and ear formation.
Barley is fundamentally different to wheat and different approaches are, therefore, required to manage disease.
This guide aims to provide up-to-date information on barley diseases and options for control.
This guide is updated annually to include the latest fungicide performance information.
