    Are they mad ?

    Lots of barley and osr cut around us over the last 2 weeks and now some wheat as well. Think I must be missing something though as lots of stubbles have been ripped up or ploughed. Diesel is £1.10/litre and wearing metal prices doubled yet lots of people are out there carrying on as normal...

    Black bean aphids on beans, worth controlling now?

    As above. NO flowers left so no risk to bees. Don't normally treat because of this and usually worse on headlands, but these are right through the crop now.

    Whats wrong with this spring Barley?

    Some of the leaves are showing this yellowing, 1st noticed it when I was spraying it with Jaunt on 28th May, it has got slightly worse since then. If it doesn't get any worse from now on it won't affect the yield much but does any one know what has caused it?

We’ve also tried grass but without our own livestock we get...
