    Willowherb?

    I seem to have had a very successful year with willowherb and can see a lot of new seedlings growing on a wheat stubble, adjacent to a block of summer fallow land (now cultivated up) where it set seed, and blew...! The stubble in question is going into a DD Spring bumblebird mix next, but I am...

    Italian Ryegrass volunteers

    Planning to drill winter wheat into this ex-Italian ryegrass, really reluctant to plough as the soil looks good however, as you can see, there is a large seed bank waiting to germinate. Is another pass with glyphosate enough to sort the problem? The other option is to wholecrop it but I’d prefer...

    Pre em for expected wild oats.

    We got a big second flush of wild oats in beans this year, and now into wheat ,I want the best control possible. Usually use liberator at .6l but if a sniff of pdm would be beneficial it can have it. Opinions welcome.

    WW pre em

    What's everyone going with at pre em this autumn? Usual suspects liberator and picopro/max? Does defy added to the mix help with grass weed??

    Spring wheat weed control strategy

    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? Pre-em? Emergence...

    Broadway Star Performance 2021

    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...

    Will we be ploughing for re seeding in the future?

    With farmers taking the blame for wrecking the planet do you think we will be ploughing up permanent grassland to re seed?

    To Growth reg or not to growth reg ?

    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...

    Spraying with a frost at night.

    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

    Mixing anything with spring Grassweed herbs in wheat

    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

    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.

    How to kill Rye grass

    Axial Pro does nothing. Would Pacifica Plus maybe do the job this spring?

    Cover crop after failed winter wheat

    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...

    Spring ryegrass herbicide options

    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...

    State of your crops?

    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.

    Contract Farming, for a Dairy

    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...

    I've just read the latest DEFRA booklet that came in the post this morning. It all sounds great, I just hope it live up to expectations.
