Andrew Mahon

A fifth year of reliability for Northants grower

Northamptonshire-based Andrew Mahon has used Univoq for five seasons running. He grows 350ha of wheat and last year used Univoq across 300ha. 

Andrew applied Univoq at a rate of 1.25l/ha on 18 May 2023. “We went on the early side, but there was a weather window. We were happy with Univoq’s performance, particularly from a rust and septoria perspective,” he adds. “It did what it said on the tin.”

Septoria suppression in Suffolk for Oliver Pipe

“Using Univoq was a decision I made with my agronomist as to what would give us the most bang for our buck. It was one of the top-performing products and definitely the most competitively priced.  When we applied it there wasn’t much disease to clear up, so the Univoq just quietly got on with its job and the crop stayed green.  Yields were good – there are so many variables you don’t know if it’s down to any one thing in particular, but if you’ve kept it green you know it’s going to be alright.”

Univoq keeps septoria at bay

A Cotswolds farmer who has had no septoria on his farm since applying Univoq is “100% sure” he will continue to use it in the future.

Jim Organ, who farms 650 acres near Bourton on the Water, has applied the fungicide, which contains Inatreq active, to his winter wheat crop for the past two years. 

“My agronomist said it’s the best septoria cure on the market, so that’s why we went with it,” Jim says. Read the full article here.

 

Wheat

Looking forward to using Univoq for the 3rd year running

Alex Sherwood grows up to 300 acres of wheat every year and applied Univoq on his agronomist’s advice. 

“It performed very well,” Alex says. “I didn’t notice any disease when we applied it, so it was used more as a precaution than anything else. 

“I would definitely use it again and would recommend it to other farmers,” Alex says. “I would also stick to the same rates and timings.”  Read the article in full here.

The latest news - not to be missed

Fungicide programme decisions in a torrid year; food for thought
Technical update from Corteva’s Field Technical Manager, Craig Chisholm.  Read in full here.

"There will be no one-size-fits-all approach to T1 and T2 fungicide applications in 2024. The seemingly never-ending rain has seen to that. Instead, we expect to see wheat growers across the UK and Ireland to make their product and rate choices on a field-by-field basis depending on their individual circumstances."

Cereal growers will need to use the best tools available to them to offset the threat of septoria this year, Corteva Agriscience has advised.
After the warmest February on record for England and Wales, followed by a very wet March, early indications in the field are pointing towards a high septoria pressure year. The conditions look likely to create a perfect storm; septoria lesions are already being spotted in fields, even on varieties with proven high resistance, such as Extase.
