Fungicide use Always consult your agronomist and adapt programmes to local conditions. Getting the fungicide agronomy right is crucial to establishing a healthy crop and maintaining canopy during yield formation. Only two strobilurins can be applied in any one season. Knowing the end use for your crop and understanding your local environmental conditions will aid the decision of when to apply a strobilurinbased product. T0 – Only needed in extremely high pressure years or on early autumn-sown crops. Using Cherokee will provide very good control against brown rust. The use of a protectant mildewicide may be needed if powdery mildew is at significant levels. T1 – T1 timing is key for protecting leaf 3 (up to 10% of the yield in wheat comes from leaf 3). A triazole and chlorothalonil mix will control Septoria tritici and protect against the development of other foliar diseases. T2 – This is the most important fungicide timing as control of diseases on the flag leaf give considerable yield advantages (up to 65% of yield comes from the top 2 leaves). Strobilurins offer protection against late-season rust infections and increase yield through their ‘greening effect’. The addition of a triazole and/or Bravo is crucial in eradicating and preventing the infection of Septoria tritici. T3 – ‘Ear spray’ – targeting ear diseases helps prevent the degradation of grain quality. The ear spray also gives additional control of disease on the top two leaves. CORE PROGRAMME T0 – Cherokee 0.75-1.0 lt/ha (only if risk of brown rust is high) T1 – Cherokee 1.5 lt/ha + eyespot active fungicide if there is a risk OR Amistar Opti 1.25 lt/ha + triazole (three quarter rate) T2 – SEGURIS 0.75-1.0 lt/ha T3 – Amistar Opti 0.75 lt/ha + Fusarium-active triazole Note: Amistar Opti is a co-formulation containing azoxystrobin and chlorothalonil (Bravo).

Recommended sowing rates Suggested seed rates per square metre are shown below, these should always be used in conjunction with the thousand grain weight. • September to Mid October ~ 220-275 seeds/m2 • Mid-October onwards ~ 275-350 seeds/m2 Denman is a medium to low-tillering variety.

Nitrogen application Standard nitrogen input programme for a feed variety, typically not exceeding 180 kgs N/ha. • 20% middle of March (GS25-29) • 60% GS32 • 20% GS34-37 – ensures quality is maintained to cover all potential markets These figures are for guidance purposes only. You must work with your agronomist when calculating nitrogen rates and timings, taking into consideration end market requirements and the fertility of the field. You should also work within any Defra guidelines/restrictions.


PGRs Denman has straw strength similar to Viscount when treated with PGR. The addition of Moddus to the PGR programme will increase root structure and further aid plant shortening. Moddus may also be needed during tillering in low plant populations to help root stimulation and promote tiller numbers. As a guide, apply chlormequat 1.25 lt/ha + Moddus 0.1 lt/ha at GS30 and GS32. A follow-up PGR should be considered at GS34-37 for very lush and/or high yielding crops.

Grain quality Denman is a soft feed variety with very good grain quality and market potential. Denman has a good distilling rating and is well-suited for the distilling industry. • Very high alcohol yield • Low nitrogen and viscosity levels • Denman is an ideal variety for the expanding bio-ethanol and wheat refinery markets • Denman does not have the 1B/1R translocation so is suitable for all feed markets • Denman is rated as suitable for UKS (blending) Variety

Growth habit • Duxford is a medium to high-tillering variety with broad leaves and an erect growth habit • Duxford is a fast-developing variety in the spring • Suitable for drilling mid-September onwards for England and the end of September for northern England and Scotland

Recommended sowing rates Seed rates are dependent on soil conditions, rotation and time of drilling. The more difficult the environment, the higher the seed rate needs to be to compensate for potential plant loss. Suggested seeds per square metre are shown below, these should always be used in conjunction with TGW. • Mid-September to mid-October: 220-275 seeds/m2 • Mid-October onwards: 275-300 seeds/m2

Nitrogen application Standard nitrogen input programme for a feed variety, typically not exceeding 180 kgs N/ha. Duxford has early spring development so needs nitrogen early in the season to fuel its growth and maximise yield potential. • 40% middle of March (GS25-29) • 60% April (GS32) These figures are for guidance purposes only. Although Duxford is a Group 4 variety it does have gristing potential, therefore N should be increased appropriately if growing for quality (for example, an extra 40-60 kg/ha at GS37-39). You must work with your agronomist when calculating nitrogen rates and timings, taking into consideration end market requirements and the fertility of the field. You should also work within any Defra guidelines/restrictions.

This shows that sowing at lower seed rates increases grain quality with no significant yield loss. Element should be sown at 200 seeds per square metre. If drilling in early October (Scotland) or mid-October (England), consider increasing the seed rate to 230 seeds per square metre. These figures should be used in conjunction with the thousand grain weight of the seed.

Specific weight (kg/hl)

Yield (t/ha)

The chart above should always be used in conjunction with thousand-grain weight of the seed to calculate the seed rate.


Nitrogen application Trials have shown that an early application of nitrogen will increase yield levels. Element will need the same total dose of nitrogen as a conventional feed barley. In normal situations application of the total dose is recommended as follows: •

30% middle to end of February (GS25)

50% middle to end of March (GS30)

20% middle to end of April (GS32)

These figures are for guidance purposes only. You must work with your agronomist when calculating nitrogen rates and timings, taking into consideration end market requirements and the fertility of the field. You should also work within any Defra guidelines / restrictions.

PGRs Hybrid barley is drilled at a low seed rate to achieve the full yield and grain quality potential. From GS30 onwards growth is rapid so the following PGR programmes are recommended: •

GS30-31: Moddus 0.1-0.2 lt/ha + chlormequat 1.2-1.5 lt/ha

GS37-39: ethephon + mepiquat 0.5-1.0 lt/ha

In very fertile situations consider splitting the first dose of growth regulators: •

GS29: Moddus 0.1lt/ha + chlormequat 1.2 lt/ha

GS31: Moddus 0.1lt/ha + chlormequat 1.2 lt/ha

GS37-39: ethephon + mepiquat 1.0 lt/ha

Gallant is a relatively short-strawed variety with very early maturity (similar to Cordiale), helping to spread harvest workload and enabling growers to get their quality wheat harvested and in store as soon as possible.

% control of black-grass

90

Gallant is suitable for drilling from early September. It is a broadleaved, semi-erect variety with low/moderate tillering ability. Gallant has proven to be competitive against black-grass. Trial results show higher Gallant seed rates and increased residual herbicide dose have a combined result for black-grass control.

Recommended sowing rates Seed rates are dependent on soil conditions, rotation and time of drilling. The more difficult the environment, the higher the seed rate needs to be to compensate for potential plant loss. Increasing seed rates in high black-grass situations will have a beneficial effect. Suggested seed rates per square metre are shown below, these should always be used in conjunction with thousand grain weight. September: 220-250 seeds/m2

October onwards: 250-300 seeds/m2

Nitrogen application Gallant’s high yield means that extra nitrogen may be required to ensure that breadmaking specifications are met. It is an early-maturing variety. Gallant will reach GS37-39 before other Group 1 varieties, therefore final nitrogen applications need to be timed accordingly. • Total application in the region of 240 kg/ha This could be applied as follows: • 25% at tillering • 50% at GS31-32 (but no later than 4 weeks after the first application) • 25% at GS37-39 These figures are for guidance purposes only. You must work with your agronomist when calculating nitrogen rates and timings, taking into consideration end market requirements and the fertility of the field. You should also work within any Defra guidelines/restrictions.

Nitrogen application High-yielding feed spring barley varieties require a high nutrient supply. Seedbed applications are also not so important for feed varieties and therefore nitrogen could be applied as a 50:50 split dose when tramlines become visible and then 14 to 21 days later (GS15-21). These figures are for guidance purposes only. You must work with your agronomist when calculating nitrogen rates and timings, taking into consideration end market requirements and the fertility of the field. You should also work within any Defra guidelines or restrictions.


PGRs Not normally required, however Syngenta advises their use on lush crops or very fertile sites. In these cases use low rate MODDUS (0.1-0.2 lt/ha) at GS29-30 to stabilise tillers and promote root development.

Fungicide use Always consult your agronomist and adapt programmes to local conditions. CORE PROGRAMME With all high-yielding varieties, a robust fungicide programme is likely to result in an increase in yield. As with other varieties, with a new race of yellow rust now present, it will be important to factor this into fungicide decisions from the start. T0 – Cherokee 0.75 lt/ha only if rust risk is high T1 – Cherokee 1.5 lt/ha + eyespot active fungicide if there is a risk OR Amistar Opti 1.25 lt/ha + triazole (60% rate) T2 – seguris 0.75-1.0 lt/ha T3 – Amistar Opti 0.75-1.0 lt/ha + Fusarium-active triazole

Growth habit Ketchum has a semi-erect growth habit and will benefit from the application of a PGR. It has rapid growth through stem elongation and is suitable for drilling from the end of September onwards. Ketchum performs very well in the late-drill slot.

Recommended sowing rates Seed rates are dependent on soil conditions, rotation and time of drilling. The more difficult the environment, the higher the seed rate needs to be to compensate for potential plant loss. Suggested seed rates per square metre are shown below, these should always be used in conjunction with TGW. Early October: 220-250 seeds/m2 Mid-October onwards: 250-300 seeds/m2


Nitrogen application Ketchum’s high yield means that extra nitrogen may be required to ensure that breadmaking specifications are met. • Total application in the region of 180-240 kg/ha • To increase the grain protein level, 40-60 kg of the total N should be applied at flag leaf fully emerged (GS39) These figures are for guidance purposes only. You must work with your agronomist when calculating nitrogen rates and timings, taking into consideration end market requirements and the fertility of the field. You should also work within any Defra guidelines/restrictions.

PGRs Ketchum is a tall-strawed variety with a 7 rating for treated resistance to lodging. • Apply Moddus 0.2 lt/ha + chlormequat 1.25 lt/ha at T1 • In very high risk situations it may be worth considering an ethephon-based product at T2 timing (GS37)

In most situations, applying 25% of the total dose when tramlines become visible and the remaining 75% at GS15 will maintain yield potential whilst producing a desirable grain protein. In most situations the recommended amount of N for Propino would be 120-150 kg/ha, applied by GS15. This advice is for guidance purposes only. You must work with your agronomist when calculating nitrogen rates and timings, taking into consideration end market requirements and the fertility of the field.

Harvesting Top priority – with all quality crops it is critical to harvest the crop in the best condition as soon as moisture is correct. As with malting barleys, the variety should be kept separate to prevent contamination and to maintain the maximum premium from the end product.

Storage management Correct storage of malting barley is a priority to ensure harvest quality remains. Malting barley should be at a moisture of below 14.5% to minimise the risk of moulds and dried in such a way so there is no damage to germination. Grain temperatures and moistures should be checked regularly to ensure quality is maintained and germination levels are kept at 98% plus.

The chart above should always be used in conjunction with thousand-grain weight of the seed to calculate the seed rate.

Nitrogen application Trials have shown that an early application of nitrogen will increase yield levels. SY Bamboo will need the same total dose of nitrogen as a conventional feed barley. In normal situations application of the total dose is recommended as follows: •

30% middle to end of February (GS25)

50% middle to end of March (GS30)

20% middle to end of April (GS32)

These figures are for guidance purposes only. You must work with your agronomist when calculating nitrogen rates and timings, taking into consideration end market requirements and the fertility of the field. You should also work within any Defra guidelines/restrictions.

PGRs Hybrid barley is drilled at a low seed rate to achieve the full yield and grain quality potential. From GS30 onwards growth is rapid so the following PGR programmes are recommended: •

GS30-31: Moddus 0.1-0.2 lt/ha + chlormequat 1.2-1.5 lt/ha

GS37-39: ethephon + mepiquat 0.5-1.0 lt/ha

In very fertile situations consider splitting the first dose of growth regulators: •

GS29: Moddus 0.1lt/ha + chlormequat 1.2 lt/ha

GS31: Moddus 0.1lt/ha + chlormequat 1.2 lt/ha

The more difficult the environment, the higher the seed rate needs to be to compensate for potential plant loss. Suggested seed rates per square metre are shown below, these should always be used in conjunction with the thousand grain weight. • Mid September–mid October 225–275 seeds/m2 • Mid October onwards 250–325 seeds/m2

Drilling date The highest yield potential for SY Epson is achievable from sowing mid September onwards.

Nitrogen application SY Epson is a potential Group 3 variety and should be treated accordingly – typically not exceeding 180 kg N/ha • 25% mid Feb–mid March • 50% GS32 • 25% GS34-37 These figures are for guidance purposes only. You must work with your agronomist when calculating nitrogen rates and timings, taking into consideration end market requirements and the fertility of the field. You should also work within any Defra guidelines/restrictions.


PGRs • SY Epson is a very stiff strawed variety with excellent resistance to lodging. • In low plant populations Moddus applied at GS29-30 will help root stimulation and promote tiller numbers. • As an insurance measure apply chlormequat 1.25 lt/ha + Moddus 0.1 lt/ha at GS31/32

Nitrogen application Most commercial malting barley growers use between 100-120 kg/ha with a split dressing. Syngenta recommends 40 kg/ha in mid to late February and the remainder to be applied by the end of March. These figures are for guidance purposes only. You must work with your agronomist when calculating nitrogen rates and timings, taking into consideration end market requirements and the fertility of the field. You should also work within any Defra guidelines/restrictions.


PGRs SY Venture has good straw strength characteristics; with good resistance to lodging, leaning and necking. SY Venture also has shorter straw than existing market leading malting barley varieties. In normal situations consider: GS31-32 ~ Moddus 0.2 lt/ha + chlormequat 1.25 lt/ha at onset of stem extension. In extreme conditions when there is a high risk of lodging on fertile sites consider applying Ethephon + Mepiquat chloride at 0.5 lt/ha GS37.

Harvesting Top priority – with all quality crops it is critical to harvest the crop in the best condition as soon as moisture is correct. As with malting barleys, the variety should be kept separate to prevent contamination and to maintain the maximum premium from the end product.

Storage management Correct storage of malting barley is a priority to ensure harvest quality remains. Malting barley should be at a moisture of below 14.5% to minimise the risk of moulds and dried in such a way so there is no damage to germination. Grain temperatures and moistures should be checked regularly to ensure quality is maintained and germination levels are kept at 98% plus.

The chart above should always be used in conjunction with thousand-grain weight of the seed to calculate the seed rate.


Nitrogen application Trials have shown that an early application of nitrogen will increase yield levels. Volume will need the same total dose of nitrogen as a conventional feed barley. In normal situations application of the total dose is recommended as follows: •

30% middle to end of February (GS25)

50% middle to end of March (GS30)

20% middle to end of April (GS32)

These figures are for guidance purposes only. You must work with your agronomist when calculating nitrogen rates and timings, taking into consideration end market requirements and the fertility of the field. You should also work within any Defra guidelines/restrictions.

PGRs Hybrid barley is drilled at a low seed rate to achieve the full yield and grain quality potential. From GS30 onwards growth is rapid so the following PGR programmes are recommended: •

GS30-31: Moddus 0.1-0.2 lt/ha + chlormequat 1.2-1.5 lt/ha

GS37-39: ethephon + mepiquat 0.5-1.0 lt/ha

In very fertile situations consider splitting the first dose of growth regulators: •

GS29: Moddus 0.1 lt/ha + chlormequat 1.2 lt/ha

GS31: Moddus 0.1 lt/ha + chlormequat 1.2 lt/ha

GS37-39: ethephon + mepiquat 1.0 lt/ha

Fungicide use Always consult your agronomist and adapt programmes to local conditions. Getting early to mid-season agronomy right is crucial to establishing a healthy crop.

T0 -

Needed in extreme disease pressure situations (especially Rhynchosporium).

T1 -

The use of Bontima at T1 will provide clean, stress free lower green leaves to build yield potential.

T2 -

Bontima at T2 gives outstanding protection against disease for green leaf retention, securing yield potential and increasing quality by driving grain size and grain fill.

Nitrogen application High-yielding feed spring barley varieties require a high nutrient supply. Syngenta nitrogen input trials have shown the following application to be most advantageous to Waggon’s yield, grain quality and plant height: •

Split Dose of N ~ 50% at GS11/12 and 50% at GS21/22

In most situations the recommended amount of N for Waggon would be 135-150 kg/ha. These figures are for guidance purposes only. You must work with your agronomist when calculating nitrogen rates and timings, taking into consideration end market requirements and the fertility of the field. You should also work within any Defra guidelines or restrictions.

PGRs Not normally required, however Syngenta advises their use on lush crops or very fertile sites. In these cases use low rate Moddus (0.1-0.2 lt/ha) at GS29-30 to stabilise tillers and promote root development.

Grain quality Specific Weight: 67.4 kg/hl*

*Source: HGCA Recommended List 2012

Harvesting: Normal harvest priority – Waggon has excellent resistance to ear loss, but it is always advisable to harvest the crop in the best condition as soon as moisture is correct.

This table should always be used in conjunction with thousand-grain weight of the seed to calculate the seed rate.

Nitrogen Application Most commercial malting barley growers use between 100-120 kg/ha with a split dressing. Syngenta recommends 40 kg/ha in mid to late February and the remainder to be applied by the end of March. These figures are for guidance purposes only. You must work with your agronomist when calculating nitrogen rates and timings, taking into consideration end market requirements and the fertility of the field. You should also work within any Defra guidelines/restrictions.


PGRs Commercial malting barley growers have controlled lodging easily with a standard programme. On very lush or fertile sites a second PGR at GS37 may be required, but must not be used in drought conditions. In normal situations consider: GS31-32 ~ Moddus 0.2 lt/ha + Chlormequat 1.25 lt/ha at onset of stem extension. GS37 - 1.0 lt/ha (Ethephon + Mepiquat chloride).

Harvesting: Top Priority – with all quality crops it is critical to harvest the crop in the best condition as soon as moisture is correct. As with malting barleys, the variety should be kept separate to prevent contamination and to maintain the maximum premium from the end product.

Storage Management: Correct storage of malting barley is a priority to ensure harvest quality remains. Malting barley should be at a moisture of below 14.5% to minimise the risk of moulds and dried in such a way so there is no damage to germination. Grain temperatures and moistures should be checked regularly to ensure quality is maintained and germination levels are kept at 98% plus.
