Anyone else seeing Beet Mosaic Virus?
I seem to have varying amounts of it in my fields as well as smaller areas of Yellows.
I think it may relate to how badly the herbicide stressed the crop in the dry weather.
No. The field was Trio’d last autumn, but had capped badly due to the winter rainfall. It was straight into the sprayed off Trio’d land at an angle, thus using the old tramlines again, then rolled a little later. No other sprays up to now.
I have had a couple of seven seat Nissan terranos insured with the Nfu as any driver any age.
my children found that quite useful whenever their own vehicle broke down.
they are cheap, economical and reliable.
they have a hi low gearbox and tow well although I can’t remember what they are...
Apart from a coppery sheen to the coat, what were the symptoms, an old farmer, no longer with us, told me thirty years ago that around here if you can see the river (Pant,Colne etc), the soil will be deficient in copper!
Yes similar soil to you I am guessing.
Ok slapped wrist. Calf is taking the bottle, and moves occasionally to find shade or warmth, but still has trembles. We are a little wary of overdosing selenium as apparently that is as bad as a lack of it.
We have brought calf back home for bottle feeding. It can get up now, but trembles continually and soon lies down again. Breathing speeds right up if it stands up. I will try to attach a video.
can anyone tell me how to attach a video rather than a photo?
That was in about twenty minutes. I was double rolling a field and had to pull off fold up and drive out round some tramlines. Very relieved as I was starting to wonder what I have been doing for the past three weeks.
As far as using a free signal like Egnos to drill with, forget it. We tried using Egnos for quite a few years for a variety of jobs. It was useable for rolling or raking but couldn’t even keep accurate to half a metre or more some days.
That tractor now has rangepoint which is accurate and...
Thanks for the suggestion Agrivator, we went to vets and collected vitamin injections, and gave a selenium drench. Vet said Heifer (which is lean) could be lacking reserves, and a fast growing calf is therefore very short of selenium.
I checked the mineral buckets we use and they have selenium...
Possibly a water cooler for the engine oil failed internally. The oil is at higher pressure than the water so it gets forced into the coolant system.
if it’s a deutz 4 cylinder it’s a known problem, not too bad to replace. I have had it happen on two different merlo P40.7. Once under warranty...
No. 30 metres from the shed. One thought I did have is there is a small area of new westerwolds growing in a previously poached area of the field. Obviously this grows very fast and has had nitrogen on the field. Wondering whether it’s eaten that and has upset it, although it is not scouring.
