Disease Control in Winter Wheat

Disease protection in winter wheat has a direct impact on yield quantity and quality. The flag leaf fungicide spray is the most important application of the season. It gives the biggest payback and is the most critical to get right.

Wheat farmers require consistent quality and high yields. However, there are a number of challenges that farmers face when growing winter wheat. Along with different diseases, they may deal with extreme weather conditions such as drought or extreme heat. BASF fungicides are designed to allow flexibility in spray timing, weather independence and provide broad-spectrum protection.

Treating winter wheat with SDHIs will

  • control diseases
  • increased nitrogen uptake
  • reduced drought stress
  • reduced sun stress
  • increased host defence actions
