    What are the benefits of no-till farming?

    Reading other peoples horror stories about harvest elsewhere on the forum, I'm minded to keep my head down as things don't seem too bad here. It's not been a record breaking harvest (and we've still got a fair bit of spring wheat to cut), but things haven't gone too badly and it's been a cheap...

    Glyphosate wetter

    Soz, I know this has come up many times, just can't be bothered searching. When using cheap glyphosate at say 3 l/ha what's a cost efficient wetter to use with it? Everyone has been enthusiastic about LI700 from memory, what sort of price is it currently and what rate? Any other options?

    Roundup/generic and 2,4D??

    I have been less than impressed with Kyleo this Spring, cleaning up an old Stewardship OWS and Birdy mixes. Possibly it was a little dry at the time, but it was gutless against a mass of wild clover and Mugwort. I have another 4ha of teh same to take out in a few weeks time, and wondered about...
