82 AL 60, Clover scorch fungicide trials. Aim: Test a range of new fungicides for clover scorch control in comparison with Benlate. Comments: DPX 164-2 and Bavistin gave excellent disease control even at the lower rate. Benlate and Tilt were still satisfactory but control was not as good at the lower rate. Bayleton and Baycor gave some disease control but only at the higher rate. Cercospora leaf spot could be found on most plots with careful search. Economically important damage has occurred only on a few plots. Pseudopeziza leaf spot was notably absent during this season compared with others. 83 MB 1, 83 AL 1. Lupinosis control. Aim: Test variously timed spray applications of Benlate at the rate of 300 g/ha to control invasion of lupin sterns by Phornopsis.
