IMPROVED ROOTING AND FOLIAGE WEIGHTS
IN WINTER BARLEY
We have observed excellent rooting and foliage weight
benefits in barley with both VIBRANCE Duo alone and
co-applied with Rancona 15ME.

Average of 10 winter barley assessments across four sites. Shropshire,
Newark, Berwick and Glamis on 3 x SY KINGSBARN, 2 x BAZOOKA, 2 x
SURGE, 2 x LG Flynn and 1 x FLAGON drilled autumn 2019 and assessed
at early to mid-tillering.

TARGET YOUR CHEMISTRY – some diseases cannot be
controlled by foliar sprays. Seed treatments are highly
targeted so the field only receives a small amount of
active ingredient. Choose your chemistry wisely.
ALWAYS READ AND FOLLOW THE LABEL – adhere to
cut-off dates, drilling depth and safety advice.
ENSURE SAFE HANDLING OF TREATED SEED – always
wear the right PPE according to label requirements.
R EDUCE DUST – reduce the risk of dust by avoiding
filling the hopper too quickly or from a height. Avoid
shaking seed bags as they empty. Avoid breathing in
dust and ensure all equipment is cleaned following use.
E NSURE DRILLING IS ON TARGET – ensure no seed is
released in transit to the field and that the drill vents
are in the soil and the drill is moving forward before the
seed is released.
ANAGE SPILL RISKS – carry a spill kit containing a
M
spade and seed bag when drilling. Fill the drill in an
area where a spill can be easily cleared up. Small spills
can be buried, larger spills will require clearing up into
a bag for safe disposal later.
E NSURE ALL TREATED SEED IS BURIED – during
drilling visually check difficult areas of the field, such
as corners and headlands to ensure all treated seed is
buried to protect wildlife.
Spring barley average yield data across 24 sites drilled seasons 2017-2019.
