Abstract

• This three year trial program contributed to Uniform® and EverGol® Prime being recently registered for Rhizoctonia root rot control using liquid banding applications. Uniform® (RRP: not set at time of printing) is registered for liquid application in-furrow and on the soil surface, whereas EverGol® Prime (RRP: $145/L) is registered for liquid application in-furrow only.

• Uniform® banding treatments had better efficacy than Vibrance® seed treatment. Banding treatments were associated with more significant and bigger yield responses, with dual banding of Uniform® in-furrow 3-4 cm below the seed and on the surface behind the press wheel giving the most consistent yield and root health responses across seasons.

• Yield responses achieved by banding EverGol® Prime in-furrow were not significantly different from EverGol® Prime seed treatments. However, banding in-furrow combined with seed treatment significantly improved root health compared to banding in-furrow or seed treatment alone.
