Disease issues run rampant if it gets rain and high humidity at the wrong time, heading flowering etc. Our desert conditions down here help that a lot.Huh, always thought durum was a Palliser Triangle crop therefore more drought tolerant.
Nope. Seen it a couple years ago with my neighbours that grew canola. Also this year I habe heard of half a dozen guys in my area with viper burn. Even had a guy show me pics on his phone of two fields side by sideI thought solo/imazamox doesn't have long residual like pursuit
Durum on canola stubble was twice as good as durum on lentil stubble here.
This is common in years when it is dry in the application (pea lentils) and durum is also much more sensitive than spring wht. also lighter texture soil!!Nope.

Maybe our soil type. Not sure
I have this same issue, flax stubble the worst!! and it caught snow !! on very heavy clay soil, did 120 ac and had 200 bu that was sickening!!!Stronghold here. It failed on nearly every front. It's supposed to be sawfly "resistant", but in low spots and field edges where snow layed it was down 15-30% so that was a serious piss off. I hate using lifters!
The sheer % of sterile heads was staggering. Ive never seen fields that are 90+% sterile before. Thank goodness it was the smallest field I had, but one ran 1.5bu/ac! It didnt matter what sort of stubble it was on. It all sucked! Max yield on dryland stubble was 13, poorest was 1.5. Most ran between 4 and 8.
