Was May particularly warm or wet last year?

Were there notable problems with Septoria in wheat?

Was there a diminishing effect of fungicides against Septoria, and which control strategy was the most effective against potato blight?

 

These are some of the questions that you can find answers to in a new publication that provides a comprehensive overview of the crop protection trials carried out at Aarhus University’s research station at Flakkebjerg. The report has been published by DCA – Danish Centre for Food and Agriculture.

 

The publication shows the results from experiments with new pesticides and different control strategies that form part of an integrated pest management strategy, including how to eradicate specific pests. Results on pesticide resistance are summarised as are the results from a longer project on the testing of different crop rotation systems. The trials were carried out in the field, laboratory and the semi-field facility at AU Flakkebjerg.

 

Some of the crops covered by the project are wheat, barley, rye, triticale, maize, potato and sugar beet.
