1. To determine the impact of in-furrow fungicides, seed treatments and fungicide timings, on crop health, disease levels, productivity and quality in barley. 2. To assess the interaction of disease resistance with seed treatments and fungicides 3. To assess the interactive effects of plant growth regulator application, with flag leaf emergence or head emergence fungicide application on malting barley quality, yield, microbial load, and mycotoxin level
