In official FAR CPT sprouting nurseries INFERNO has been assigned a low to moderate risk of sprout damage. However it may have low falling numbers due to other environmental conditions. Crops intended for milling should be harvested promptly to reduce the risk of reduction in falling number and marketability.

INFERNO has a good disease resistance profile, being moderately resistant to leaf rust and mostly resistant to powdery mildew and Septoria. Considering this disease profile, INFERNO can be grown with a reduced fungicide programme as long as the crop is monitored regularly for disease race changes. If being grown for extreme yields then a more robust fungicide programme is advised. Please contact your local PGW Representative for site specific recommendations.
