Oats are growing rapidly and T2 fungicides are due.  Mildew levels are low and the control from prothioconazole may be all that is needed.


Keep an eye out for patches of stunted growth which may be due to cereal cyst nematode (CCN) or free-living nematodes.

Specific advice on crop pesticides should be sought from your local agricultural advisor or agronomist.
