Tridge summary

In the eastern part of the Greater Poland Voivodeship, the development of two short-straw varieties of winter triticale is showing promising progress due to a mild autumn and winter. As of March 28, inspections revealed that the cereals are advancing well, with some already at the first sprout stage. However, challenges such as powdery mildew have been noted, especially in crops sown after soybeans without plowing, due to the variety's average disease resistance. Conversely, crops planted after corn using a no-till system and a variety with higher resistance are faring better. The mild winter conditions have also led to nutrient deficiencies, which have been mitigated by applying nitrogen doses, although the timing of the second dose may have caused leaf tip discoloration.

The development of winter cereals is accelerating Crop inspection took place on March 28. We are checking the condition of plantations of two short-straw varieties of winter triticale in the eastern part of the Greater Poland Voivodeship. The mild autumn and winter meant that this year, winter crops are already well developed at the beginning of spring. The lustrated triticale was sown from certified seed material at the date recommended for this part of the country. Currently, the cereals are already shooting at the stalk, better developed plants are already at the stage of the first sprout (BBCH 31). Powdery mildew is the biggest problem When assessing the condition of triticale, attention should be paid to the cultivation system in which the plantations are maintained. One of them was sown in a site prepared using no-plow technology after soybeans, the other in zero-tillage, i.e. direct sowing into corn stubble. It is recognized that in simplified cultivation systems there is a ...
