CropTec Show 2019: Resistance management key to retaining actives

Speaking at the Crop Protection seminar, Dr Fiona Burnett of SRUC listed resistance issues with strobilurins, azoles and SDHIs. “And we will be struggling to cope with the loss of chlorothalonil.

However, she acknowledged strides had been made in breeding for better septoria resistance and said this was not valued enough.

 

Prof Burnett also questioned the need for so many pesticide applications. “We have T minus, T0, T1.5, T4s and they are not all necessary.
