Does anyone else suffer scorching when spraying after the wind ? We're behind with T2 and spraying early mornings and late nights but are seeing a fair bit of scorch with the wax off the leaves. What are you supposed to do though ?
hi so i'm pricing out a new venture for next year and i'm wondering what is the cost of the sprays for spring barely per acre? i wouldn't be using round up as id be more then lightly crimping the barely. thank you for your help
Annoyingly, I see that I've missed a strip in one of my wheat fields, which is nearly at T1, and a large patch of well grown groundsel is very noticeable.
What can I use to kill it, given that all the chemicals in the spray store don't say that they will control it? Presently I have Eagle...
I know the latest date for sowing ST has been covered a few times on here so apologies.
I have 40 acres available to me that we could possibly get in in the next day or two, if I uped the seed rate ,and made it come as thick as cress, would that compensate for the lack of growing time to make...
I have heard from my agronomist today that someone not far from me PE9 postcode, has been harvesting extase with a yield of about 2 t/ha. Apparently KwS are looking into this. Has anyone else had any problems.?
Got caught out spraying this morning when the rain came an hour early. I was spraying spring wheat with Ally Max SX, hurler (fluroxypyr) and some trace elements. Obviously the Ally was the main product I was worried about. Officially rainfastness is 2 hours.
The leaves were dry and the sun was...
Been given a recommendation for week control in spring barley.

Seems a heavy dose to me.....just the usual suspects to deal with and not too big atvthr moment. Advice needed. Thanks

Corn taking ages to come up snd now it is how behold the bloody weeds like redshank etc. Taking off?
Any ideas as not much recommended?
Performance has been utterly pants on Sterile brome this year. Previous years it kills most of them, but always leaves a few stunted plants to return seed and continue the cycle.
This year there are healthy plants all over the crop.
Do I just put it down to the cold April allowing the brome to...
Has anyone got red/brown tipped leaves. Agronomist thinks its the cold dry weather we've had, I hope anyway!
He said other clients have the same.
Sprayed 10 days ago with
1.25 l Chlormequat
0.5 l Tubosan
0.1 l Moddus
0.4 l Starane
21g Ally Max
Started spraying after 10 in the morning and...
Have used 0.5l/ha Jaunt (Fluoxastrobin(75g/l) Prothioconazole(150g/l)
Trifloxystrobin(75g/l)) the last couple of years with good results( have both been very dry springs with low levels of disease). With the loss of CTL what are people using this year?
Got some fungicide, growth reg and manganese to go on wheat and barley but keep getting -1 for a few hours early morning. I’m holding off at the moment, are people still spraying and do they have any bad scorching
I have a small patch of oats which due to low rate liberator have no weeds👍, except cleavers. I don’t have a starane type product but I do still have a lot of MCPA and 24d which I mix for grass fields. Would on of those or a mix kill cleavers?
The labels only talk about perennial weeds🤷♂️
Hi folks, just been granted consent to plant some spring barley on SSSI. Unfortunately they have refused consent to let me use Ally Max as a herbicide as they deem it toxic to bugs etc. They have asked me to submit application for consent for alternatives. Thought the collective brains on here...
I’ve got a problem with large cranesbill in winter barley. The barley was direct drilled into wheat stubble which had received 4L/ha glyphosate a few days prior to drilling. Unfortunately it would appear that large cranesbill won’t die from glyphosate.
I’ve now got dinner plate sized cranesbill...
I have increasingly been reading that more no till farmers are applying no bagged P or K and find that their indices are not decreasing. Are any members on here finding the same? We have recently moved to no till and the back bone of our rotation is 3-4 year grazed and silaged leys, all straw...
Given the late drilling date and the amount of rain that’s gone on them I’m pleasantly pleased with the state of my crops.
I do have two small fields that are below par but most are looking well.
How are others looking?
Wheat and barley below, no rape this year but locally it looks well.
