Effectiveness of pre-sowing seed dressing.

Abstract

Effectiveness of spring wheat pre-sowing seed treatments with fungicides: Premis 200 [triticonazole] (0.2 litre per tonne of seeds); Raksil (0.5 litre/t); and Derozal [carbendazim] (2.5 litre/t) against root rot (Bipolaris sorokiniana [Cochliobolus sativus] and Fusarium sp.) and Septoria blight (Septoria tritici [Mycosphaerella graminicola] and S. nodorum [Phaeosphaeria nodorum]) was studied in Western Siberia. Application of the fungicides: Raksil; Premis 200; and Derozal, increased yield by 32%, 10.5% and 7.8%, respectively. Pre-sowing seed dressings increased the weight of 1000 seeds by 1.7-1.8% and the gluten content by 4.5-9.1%.
