Experiments in 1973 and 1974 tested the effects of ethirimol seed treatment and the timing of single sprays of ethirimol or tridemorph, on mildew control and the growth and yield of spring barley. These treatments were compared with selected combinations of two treatments designed to give longer protection. In 1973, combinations of seed treatment and spray, or two sprays, did not yield better than the best component treatment applied alone or the most effective single spray of tridemorph applied on 1 June. In 1974, mildew developed usually early and yields were increased by applying ethirimol to the seed plus a tridemorph spray or two tridemorph sprays. However, barley sprayed once with tridemorph on 20 May, the expected best date, yielded more than barley receiving a seed treatment of ethirimol plus a tridemorph spray applied on either 3 or 12 June. Sprays of captafol and tridemorph, applied as separate treatments, successively to the same plots on three occasions, gave the best yields in both years. Treatments most affected ear number but they did have some effect on all components of yield. In 1974 there was a significant relationship between ear number and the variance of the number of grains per ear.
