Thinking of swapping winter wheat for spring wheat here just to make life a bit easier in the autumn. But having never grown it and not asked the agronomist yet as I’d like a bit of knowledge, what is everybody doing weed control wise particularly for blackgrass and ryegrass?
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...
Just wondered what people’s thoughts on cutting growth regs for T1. My current recommendation is 0.1 moddus and a litre of 3C. I have some 1/2 decent looking w wheat and w barley. We use all the straw ourselves. With the current cold weather and it not exactly romping away with spring growth I...
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 know we were always told not to mix CTL and PGRs with Atlantis etc and I have always followed this (don't need a PGR after anyway!) with the exception of trace elements but there's a windy week in prospect and late drilled ww has some YR so dare I add a splash of teb with the horus? Thanks
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.
I have some field portions where winter wheat has failed due to slugs.
The land has been sprayed with Tower herbicide (Chlorotoluron, Pendimethalin & DFF)
I would like to put a cover crop (preferably Phacelia) in the bare areas to keep the soil in good nick until next autumn.
I would plan to...
I dont really pay much attention to ryegrass herbicides but will need some for this wheat after stewardship.
Best option for ryegrass, ideally not Atlantis style, and what conditions and timings? Wheat had 0.6 liberator plus avadex preem.
Do any of the mixes do blws too or better options for...
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.
What would a contract farming agreement look like for to grow maize and combinables for a neighbour on their ground?
Would you get paid say per ton of DM in the clamp of maize and per ton of grain and straw?
They are a large livestock farm, so they would be responsible for applying manure and...
Ok I will admit I’m a sceptic to some extent regarding DD but will never say never....
current system plough and combi drill.
wold land in North Yorkshire, light bits of fluffy chalk but also more Clay bits with flint among it. Usually in the same field. Land will go very tight if run...
Hi Lads ,, I know this subject has been covered before but can anyone tell me if there’s an adjuvant that covers all so to speak! I spray @ 95—100 Ltrs per ha and have used Kantor and torpedo 11.... I’m thinking mainly fungicides... validate any or much different to torpedo? Thanks for any replies.
Cereal growers urged to follow tried and tested herbicide programmes this autumn
Corteva AgriscienceTM says farmers growing winter cereal crops should persevere with early-season herbicide programmes wherever possible as changeable weather hits much of the UK.
The company says skipping a...
Due to the last 12 months weather my already shattered rotation means I've followed sb with wheat ( didn't want to grow it ) anyway we sowed 3 days after finishing combining .
So we have a volunteer issue , is frost my friend ? doesn't appears to be any chems available that will kill the stuff.
