Use good-quality, clean seed. Apply fungicide seed treatment to all wheat seed to control soil-borne and seed-borne diseases such as seed rots and seedling blights, seed-borne septoria, seed-borne fusarium seedling blight, seed-borne dwarf bunt, common bunt and loose smut. The best protection against seedling blights, smut and the bunts can be achieved through the use of a seed treatment that contains a combination of fungicides, since no one fungicide is effective against all these diseases. Good coverage of the seed is essential, otherwise, otherwise performance will be reduced.
