New online resource for wheat growers from Syngenta

With wheat harvest coming to a close, growers are beginning to think about the threat of springtime pests. Syngenta has launched the new “Tools to Grow More Wheat” agronomic resource, which will help wheat growers battle challenges throughout the growing season.

The new site is located at: http://www.FarmAssist.com/WheatSolutions.

The site focuses on three themes: Start Strong, Grow Strong and Yield Strong, and each sub-section contains one-page solutions sheets that growers can download and print. They are also easily viewed on mobile and tablet devices.

Topics include:

  • Controlling grass and broadleaf weeds
  • Protecting against seedborne diseases such as Rhizoctonia, true loose smut and Pythium
  • Determining seeding rates
  • Minimizing the impact of drought conditions
  • Managing nutrients
