Positive response to Rhizoctonia fungicide in barley

Dr Alan McKay inspects root systems affected by Rhizoctonia.

Rhizoctonia fungicide responses have been investigated in two South Australian Grain Industry Trust (SAGIT) funded projects in the South Australian Mallee, finding that applying fungicide to control rhizoctonia root rot increased barley yield by 0.3 tonnes per hectare at Wilkawatt in 2015 even though growing season rainfall was only 114mm.
