    Spring linseed advice please.

    Good point, that I cannot answer. Just an FYI Jubillee/Ally has had a label change, earliest applications from 1st of April for linseed.

    Spring linseed advice please.

    When the products were re-registered (I think for Annex 2), they did't do any work on the Oilseed residues. Chekker was on EAMU until 2014. MCPA &Chekker controls vol OSR- Linseed isn't a big enough market to warrant the cost for the work. As far as I'm aware there isn't the Oilseed data...

    Spring linseed advice please.

    Sadly there is no possibility of getting MCPA on Linseed. It is approved on Flax in France, because they don't need any residue data as flax doesn't go into the food chain. MCPA residue data is only for cereals, which means we cannot get an EAMU. Same problem for Chekker. EAMUs need the same...

    Beet growers have a neonic seed treatment for 2021

    This article sums it up well 'The research found fipronil in 99% of samples from 20 rivers and the average level of one particularly toxic breakdown product of the pesticide was 38 times above the safety limit. Fipronil and another nerve agent called imidacloprid that was found in the rivers...

    Winter linseed

    I agree, for Suffolk it can be early and i'd drill more middle of September. As has been said above, if the weather is dry then hold off until the end of September if needs be. August is too early, winter linseed is not vernalised and will keep growing if weather stays mild. I have seen August...

    poppies in winter linseed

    On the contract side, for interest, I am not aware of any contracts specifying tolerances to poppies – no other industry other than equine has concerns. Any linseed destined for equine customers will be NOPS tested prior to delivery….at their cost.

    poppies in winter linseed

    Depends when you apply it, I haven't seen many cases of bad damage, yes it can slow growth, but on upside might save you on a PGR. Yes suggest adding Zinc. Don't apply when its cold or drought -same rules as most herbicides really. MCPA was only safe at really low doses, it was a herbicide you...

    poppies in winter linseed

    MCPA and Chekker lost their EAMUs sadly, through lack of residue data. Best bet for Poppies in spring is Ally/Jubilee.

    Winter Linseed

    There is a potential risk of softening of the crop towards frost with mixing any herbicides and fungicide at this time of year.

    regular use of kerb and crawler

    I've had a few calls this week about using Kerb/Astrokerb on winter linseed. Just in case anyone has any doubt, do not use these on linseed, you will kill the linseed. Do not use Fox either. Crawler can be used, but the weather must be cold to ensure linseed doesn't take up the herbicide...

    Winter Linseed

    Winter Linseed should be drilled in September (till early October if forecast looks mild) . Linseed is not vernalised and if you drill it in August there is a good chance it will be flowering at Christmas. If you’ve missed the boat, will have to be spring linseed I’m afraid.

    Getting concerned part 2

    1-25th September, don't go too early otherwise you will need more PGR and Linseed is not vernalised, have seen August planted linseed flowering at Christmas.

    Linseed

    In my opinion, it depends if crop is variable in maturity or has late emerged weed. If like most crops it is variable/ weeds are present, desiccation will help even up the crop and control any weeds present. Up to you at the end of the day :)

    Winter linseed

    Morning, The EAMUs are still running for next year for two alternatives to diquat, subject to CRD authorization. This year AHDB has applied for an Emergency Approval for Spotlight Plus, this is still in process but expect decision very soon.

    Winter linseed

    The AHDB has applied for an Emergency Approval for Carfentrazone-ethyl (product Spotlight plus) to CRD on behalf of the linseed industry. Decision is pending and farmers will be informed when a decision is made.
