Hybrid rye must be managed differently to population rye. Here you will find an overview, which will guide you through the production of hybrid rye. Down below you can find a guide for download.
Cultivation suitability depending on preceding crop:
|Winter oilseed rape*||++|
*Favourable preceding crop but luxury as other following crops can make better
use of the preceding crop.
Sowing date and seed rate*
|End of Sept. to |
10th of Oct.
|160 – 190||1.6 – 1.9|
|10th of Oct. to |
end of Oct.
|190 – 220||1.9 – 2.2|
|End of Oct. to |
10th of Nov.
|220 – 250||2.2 – 2.5|
|2 to 3|
Nitrogen fertilisation: Emphasis should be placed on starter application.
|Fertilisation||Common practice||*Alternative splitting|
|Starter application||100 kg/ha – Nmin 0 to 30||**170 kg/ha – Nmin + 20 kg S/ha|
|Stem extension (GS 30/31)||70 kg/ha – Nmin 30 to 90||/|
|Flag leaf application (GS 37/39)||/||/|
* Favourable splitting, fertiliser is dissolved in soil before spring and early summer drought respectively – good experiences in practice
** Use of stabilised N fertiliser or slurry/fermentation residues
Note: Consider fertiliser requirement calculations
Plant growth regulator:
|Necessity||Second application if required|
|EC 31/32: 1 l CCC/ha + 0,3 l Moddus/ha |
Alternative: 0,6 kg Prodax/ha
|A second application could be necessary on better sites. |
|Depending on disease pressure:|
|In general one treatment at GS 39/40 is sufficient |
(Note: Choose fungicides with a good protective performance)
