Midas, a barley variety very susceptible to brown rust (Puccinia hordei), and two less susceptible varieties (Julia and Mazurka) were given three amounts of nitrogen (50, 100 or 150 kgN/ha) either at sowing (in March), in May, or half at each time. Benodanil sprays were applied to one half of each plot in June and again in July to control brown rust. Brown rust became more severe in 1973 than in 1974 and was most severe on Midas with 150kgN/ha. In 1973, there was most brown rust where all or part of the nitrogen was applied in May, but in 1974 there was least brown rust where all the nitrogen was applied in May, probably because dry weather limited its uptake.
In 1973, when ample rain fell in spring and summer, grain yield was increased more by nitrogen given in May than in March, especially when benodanil was given. In 1974, little rain fell until July and then March nitrogen increased grain yield most whether or not benodanil was given. Top dressing of N (in May) produced a smaller straw yield than seed-bed dressing did in each year.
Benodanil spray much decreased brown rust and increased yield of grain, but not of straw; the increase was greater in 1973 than in 1974, when brown rust was less abundant. Benodanil increased yields of all varieties, but that of the rust susceptible variety, Midas, most. Benodanil increased grain yield more, as more N was given to the barley, and more with N given in May than in March. It increased the amount of N removed by the barley grain, but not by the straw.
