Abstract

Mildew decreased grain yield by decreasing ear number and grain size (but not grain number/ear), the damage depending on the earliness and severity of mildew. In 1971 when mildew was early and severe, ethirimol seed dressings at 0.22 kg a.i./ha, which gave only early protection, increased yield more than did ethirimol sprays applied to protect the flag leaf and ear. In 1972 sprays were better than seed dressings at this rate because mildew was less severe during the seedling stages.
