Warren Bills believes there’s a better way to manage sclerotinia risk in canola. And for the last couple of years he’s been putting that idea to the test.
Bills, the business development manager for digital farming at Bayer CropScience, says the trick is to identify variable canola fields and spray the areas with high biomass. High biomass areas are more likely to develop disease (and produce yields worth protecting) than low biomass areas. In this video interview with Grainews field editor Lisa Guenther, he explains the details.
