Fungicide Timing on Bailey

— Written By

Question: Baileys planted on May 20th. When should we start applying the first fungicide?

Answer:

You can start at R3 (obvious visible very small pod, first one) for susceptible varieties. Bailey you can wait a week later. Right about now in many fields planted in early to mid-May.
