Cereal Fungicide performance workshops

February 22, 2023

Fungicide sprays make up close to half of the agrochemical cost on most cereal crops in our wet maritime climate. Therefore it is important to ensure the correct products are used at the right timings to protect potential crop yields.  This is made more complicated by the ongoing shifts in sensitivity of the disease to the active ingredients available and also the constant change in availability of active ingredients.   To help growers with this decision, CAFRE are holding several workshops to update growers on the performance of current fungicides.  Speakers at the events will be Steven Kildea, Teagasc and Michelle Nuttall AHDB. 

The events will be held in:

  • Roepark Resort Limavady, 7.30 pm on Monday 27th February
  • CAFRE Greenmount Campus Antrim, 2.00pm Tuesday 28th February
  • Millbrook Lodge, Ballynahinch, 7.30pm Tuesday 28th February

At the Greenmount and Ballynahinch events Aveen McMullan, Senior Agriculture Technologist CAFRE. will also give a quick update on the progress of the Soil Nutrient Health Scheme.
