Peer Review: Nigel Wilhelm (SARDI)
- Intake (on fertiliser) and Jockey (on seed) is current standard practice for lower EP canola and lowered Blackleg stem infection. In 2014 this practice also increased grain yield. This remains the recommended practice.
- The application method for the fungicide, either as seed treatments or in-furrow, did not increase canola yields in 2015 or 2016.
- The source of nutrients and application method, either fertiliser, in-furrow or foliar had no effect on canola yield in 2014
