Abiotic in-crop constraints for wheat


Group F herbicide damage

Constraint – Group F herbicide damage


  • Symptoms appear within 3-4 days of application
  • White/yellow spots, streaks, or bands on leaves that may be accompanied by mauve  discolouration
  • Exceptionally high rates can result in leaf bleaching, and stunted plants 


  • Effects disappear as new growth develops
  • Plants can become stunted, but rarely die


There are no treatment options, plants normally completely recover. As a precaution, spray when the risk of drift is low or when environmental conditions are optimal.
