Growth Stages

Worth reminding ourselves about key Growth Stages at this time of the year.

GS30 (Стадии роста 30) when the plant gives the appearance of going in to stem extension, hence the descriptive name, pseudostem erect .  Wheat is currently at this stage.

GS31 (Стадии роста 31), first node detectable, the main top dressing needs to go on about this time.

GS32 (Стадии роста 32), second node detectable, time to get that T1 fungicide on.
