    What new feed wheat?

    I need to replace Skyfall for this autumn drilling. It’s breaking then to rust and has had its day now. Will carry Graham for another year, hopefully more. So what varieties are worth looking at? Note I’m in the SW so good septoria scores are a must!

    T3

    Anyone warrant doing a T3 this year? Growing skyfall and is a bit of yellow rust around so may do a cheapo one involving Tebuconazole

    T2

    So, T2 has always been the big spend. Is this Revystar the complete dogs danglies? Because £45/ha gets me a lot of other chem.

    Winter wheat T1 2021

    Ok, what are your plans for T1? Back in April when it was looking like another drought I was thinking keep it cheap! However we’ve now had A LOT of rain and 90% of the wheats are looking like they have some good potential. So, my and my agronomist thoughts are to go with a more robust T1 His...

    Biostimulants

    What are people's views/experiences of using biostimulants as a replacement for fungicides? Particularly Scyon. I questioned the inclusion of it from agronomist today and said it would replace ctl.

    T1

    Ours we be there end of next week I expect, especially when in warms up. No T0 and no disease about here. What are people thinking? SDHI? Anything will be partnered with Folpet.

    T0

    Know it's miles early. What's he collectives thoughts now CTL has passed on. Is Iodus (Laminarin?) any use on Septoria and Mildew (plenty of peatground) or is it a case of Folpet with fingers firmly crossed? In the West so Septoria is the main target.

    Research Briefing – Emerging from the shadows

    Written by cpm Though it’s spent many years in the shadows, the loss of chlorothalonil has arguably thrust folpet into the spotlight as an alternative solution and new research shows it may be more effective than previously given credit for. CPM finds out more. The reality is, if we’re not...

    Box yard scraper

    Considering getting one of these to try and speed up scraping operations in yards and one shed I have without auto scrapers, was thinking it would take a lot less passes than a conventional rubber type tractor scraper. There appears to be several makes on the market, is there one in particular...

    17 month old Elatus....

    came partnered with Alto Elite march 2019. Didn't get used last summer as unnecessary. Looking even more unnecessary this year....was to be partnered with a bit of teb and PTZ (mostly milling wheat) as a combined flag and ear. Have 80% of full rate !! Store it for another year - i'm not so...

    Anybody NOT t2-ing, t1-ing etc because of frosts

    Unusually cold this week. Another frost this morning, so at least 3 this week now. Have T2 on wheat to do, T1 on SB and some beans to tidy up. All mixes containing a herbicide. Anybody not applying with such low night temps?

    T2, anybody using Revystar??

    Is anybody going to use Revystar at T2, would a low rate work as well as a good rate of the slightly older chemistry if you spend the same ££. My best wheat is Extase, so Revysol would be a bit OTT, but I have got a decent block of Crusoe which might benefit.

    T1

    Unless I've missed it, surprised this discussion hasn't started. Just about to start our earliest wheat. Have mid October Extase and Zyatt to do. Was planning CTL + epoxi, but now next week is looking wetter, do I drop some Imtrex in to make it up to equivalent of 0.8l/ha of Adexar?

    Could you run a farm scale trial in 2018? (Direct Driller Issue 1 - Article 9)

    Could you run a farm scale trial in 2018? We as farmers are constantly being told about trial results, but as they say, there is nothing like trying things yourself on your own farm. Many of you out there are indeed already doing this, but what we would like to see is people sharing these...
