BASF Technical Service Representative Ken Deibert says the crop is advancing rapidly. “I’ve put on a lot of miles here this week and there’s a fair bit of both spring wheat and barley just starting to head and even a couple wheat fields have starting flowering.” Deibert says that is the perfect timing for the application of Sphaerex or Caramba fungicide. Growers are encouraged to contact their ag retailer as soon as possible. “We all know that supplies of many products have been pretty tight this year so make sure we secure those brands here ahead of application time.”
