VETCH HAY !!! AN increasingly important grass / herbicide/ root disease break in our <260mm GSR rainfall zones
April 10th sown MORAVA vetch showing plenty of vigour
Important timing for pre-canopy closure fungicide protection ...from botrytis grey mould. Best option is VERITAS or a CARBENDAZIM + MANCOZEB mix . This is possibly the most valuable fungicide you’ll do to keep disease out of the lower canopy before spring flush .
Please see photo that most farmers enquire about early ….. it’s not disease , it’s some early crop effect from the early grass herbicide/insecticide application where heavy solvent loading on young leaves cause some spotting.
Talk to your IKC agro to keep your VETCH clean of disease this season .
