    OSR fungicide

    Still very little phoma here so no fungicide applied yet. Might put some Tebuconazole in with the Kerb for Light leaf spot..

    2022 Sugar beet price not enough

    Spring barley meant to help reduce aphids and virus yellows apparently, you right it could dry it out though.

    2022 Sugar beet price not enough

    Same here Robbie, lots of reminders and even a visit from the fieldsman. Apparently the 10% market linked beet would be worth £34/t if prices stayed the same. The whole tonneage should be that price and they wouldn’t have to go round begging for beet.

    Kerb/Astrokerb

    Is there any difference in OSR yield between Kerb/Astrokerb/not sprayed? Any data somebody can point me towards please?

    OSR fungicide

    Very hard to find any phoma in varieties Aspire and Annika yet. Usually quite a bit of phoma showing in previous varieties by Guy Fawkes. What about light leaf spot or is it too early?

    Are the AHDB complicit with RT?

    This could get very interesting, I shall light the wood burner and pull up a chair.

    OSR deficiency

    Both varieties Aspire and Annika are TuYv resistant so unless it’s volunteer OSR it’s deficiency.

    OSR deficiency

    Where there is N overlap no deficiency showing but I agree it is most probably lack/unattainable P. Would a foliar application be worthwhile in November? Or wait to spring?
