Friend of mine has asked what's happening to his spring beans. The photo above shows the start of what seems to kill the bean. It is affecting the whole field. His first taught was spray drift from a neighbour. But agronomist says that whole field would not be affected. As it's a funny shape...
I know there’s another general BG thread but this is just a particular question about chemicals.
Basically what are your ‘chemical’ approaches to BG. We aren’t doing a proper job so looking for ideas please.
Up until now we have not had a problem with black grass. But one field seems to have got away on us. It’s first wheat after osr and would expect it yield about 10t/ha. There is not enough grass to effect the yield but too much to pull by hand. The area is about 12ac which would be about 4% of...
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.

Tried ploughing and it doesn’t work.
Tried No-Till and that doesn’t work.
Tried spring crops and they aren’t working.
Tried maize and it...

The Red Tractor logo or brand does not appear on products that UK cereal growers supply the ingredients for so unquestionably has no value to end consumers of bakery and other cereal products
The processors of these products including the likes of Hovis and Warburtons have stated that they have...
Hi all got 250 acre mixed farm with plenty of cattle which in turn means loads of fym currently growing grass for the horse market wheat , spring barley and maize ( may drop maize yet ) , thinking ahead the grass will help the soil structure and seems a shame to plough it up and it’s heavy clay...

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.
Good morning everybody,
Currently looking for advice and anything anybody has to offer will be greatly appreciated! I’m currently a store cattle farmer with mixed arable and grass land but I’m looking to expand so I’m thinking about taking out some of our grasses and putting more winter barley...
We have a product here (one called Vario) that has the same make up as dicurane used to have.
I have some here for use but never managed to get any on.
When I used to use it in the uk, it was always in November (usually seemed to be during children in need week) and actually I can’t remember how...
Looking to buy a meal bin the type that holds about 750kg to sit at a shed away from main steading. Save carting feed bags about as much . Nobody local to me had any just wondered if anybody has seen them in stock anywhere or any alternative things I can use . The most appealing type was the...
