Management of Lodging in Spring Wheat with a Plant Growth Regulator (PGR)

  • Start date: 2018
  • Project Length: On-Going

Background

When does it make sense to use a plant growth regulator for your wheat crop in Manitoba? This is a question in many farmers’ minds as they see a good growing season developing. An application of a PGR can be a useful tool in a high-input situation where the wheat crop has high yield potential and at a high risk of lodging.

The purpose of this project is to quantify the impact of a plant growth regulator on height, lodging and yield of spring wheat.
