My Pixel has a good bit of it too. I was close on 10 days late getting the final spray onto it due to that shite weather in late May. Minor bits on my infinity but the heads were a week later emerging than the Pixel. Up till that I felt the crops were looking fairly well.

2 fungicides? Did you use Arizona or a version of folpet twice?

If you don’t mind me asking, what farm software package are you using to record spray applications?
Don’t have any hesitation asking @Rebelman. I am by no means an IT person, It’s just Microsoft Excel and I have developed it a bit over the last few years. There is a bit of work in setting it up with field names, acres etc but it makes it a bit easier to keep the records and compare back to previous years etc.
When I had a smaller sprayer it was very handy to give me the volume of each potion as each tank would just cover a field.
I use it for everything from seed quantities to fertilizer, sprays and cost analysis. At the end of the year I transfer info into Teagasc Ecrop in case it’s needed for inspection as they may not like mine as twoud be new to anyone looking at it.
if you are handy with excel you would manage it easy enough.
