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

Category: On Farm Research
Keywords: PGRs Wheat
Start Date: 2019

Objective: To quantify the impact of the plant growth regulator Manipulator 620 (active ingredient chlormequat chloride) on height and yield of spring wheat.

PROJECT PROTOCOLS: Plant Growth Regulator OFT 2019

Benefits to MB Producers: 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.
