I am growing OSR this year on some ground that has had problems with charlock in the past. Apart from growing a Clearfield variety I wondered whether any one had some tips on how to control it, such as a weed wiper.
Some of my winter beans haven't weathered the winter very well and I've got a few bare spots appeared. I was thinking of ripping up some of it the other day, but now they improved a bit and with the dry weather I am worried that putting the linseed in might end up leaving me with nothing...
We broadcasted our white clover with the slug pelleter whilst rolling the osr in last autumn. Clover did fine, osr failed. Used glyphosate (2l/ha I think) pre drilling, drilled zyatt 1st week in October with the mzuri. I think the wheat rate should possible be increased.
How do you think...
It has a free flow return which is the easy bit to put it back in the tank.
I can check the flow, but it should be sufficient it's not a very big crane. It will just go a bit slower
I am thinking I could take the wire out of the joystick and install a switch parallel in the circuit.
I have a JCB 530-70 ' 03plate and I want to put a timber trailer on it, so I can pick up and move wood around the yard. However to operate the spools you need to press and hold a button. I would like to have a continuous flow so I can operate the timber trailer out on the platform. I...
Well it would be interesting to see a trial vs a control plot. It would probably fix some, but unsure on the economics. Putting in a cheap catch of oats, mustard or rye would catch the excess N and release when terminated in the spring as it would have a low C:N ratio meaning lots of available...
It's called thinking outside the box!
There is a method of growing wheat called the Bonfil method, created by Marc Bonfil, there is a Japanese chap who's name escapes me at present who also did it. The idea is that you plant early, creating large plants which tiller loads and being in the soil...
Without worrying about disease and grassweeds. Theoretically how early could you drill winter wheat without it going to ear by Xmas? I understand the winter varieties need to go through the vernalisation period, but that most varieties don't require this as much now due to cross breeding with...
How has everyone got on with their trials?
I broadcast white clover and yellow Trefoil after drilling my osr (Sept 2019). Unfortunately the osr failed, but the clover pulled through. This year I am hoping to drill wheat straight in to the ley with my mzuri.
Looking in to the world of tined weeders and was wondering what success/experience people have had with them in all combinable crops.
It worries me that the chemical companies have too much money!
