Wheat Season

With the onset of wheat planting just a quick look at what chemicals and fertilisers Maguires have available for Wheat.


We have two choices of cereal blend – 6.23.23 and 6.28.23. The latter being used where you have low phosphate levels in your soil results. These would be applied at around 350kgs per hectare.

For additional Calcium & Sulphur Gypsum can be applied at 300kgs/ha or at about 100kgs/ha for Granulated Gypsum. The third option is to apply between 25 – 50 lts of Liquid Gypsum through the pivot.

For Top Dressing you would generally apply about 500kgs of Ammonium Nitrate.

Maguires has two foliar applications – Wheat Oemff Early which is applied at 4kgs/ha with a vicon or at 8kgs/ha through the pivot at Stooling and Wheat Oemff Flag which is applied at 4kgs/ha with a vicon or at 8kgs/ha through the pivot at Flag leaf.



If a pre planting clean up is necessary you can use Glyphosate 480SL at 2kgs/ha.

For seed dressings the following is available- Baytan 150FS at 165mls per ha of seed and Galmano Plus at 450mls/ha. For soil insects at planting Confidor 70WG can be used at 150g/ha. For ants Fipronil can be used at 200mls/ha.
