New Zealand grows some of the highest wheat yields in the world. We are fortunate to enjoy the ideal climatic conditions, to have available water for irrigation and to be home to some of the best arable farmers in the world to make this possible. As yield is the primary driver of profitability for wheat crops this makes it a very economically attractive crop to grow.

To ensure a wheat crop realises its full potential, care is needed right from planting in order to control a range of weed, disease and insect pests and Bayer Crop Science provides a range of very effective products to do this. These products include seed treatments such as Raxil Star and Peridiam seed coatings, herbicides such as Firebird, Sakura, Othello OD, Hussar and Puma S and fungicides such as CALEY iblon, VIMOY iblon, Aviator Xpro, Delaro, Proline, Prosaro and Kestrel.
