In light of Asulam only being available in IBC Qty and controlled heavily, and the fact that I do not wish to eradicate everything around and entwined in the bracken that seems to like growing around our area - what options are left available to help kill it off the bracken?
Recent soil analysis is showing K levels at 0 on a lot of the cutting ground. PH around 6.0. The margins around the fields are showing good growth but can see where I’ve cut last year very clearly and the yields don’t look very promising! Is MOP the best long term option? And if so where would...
As per the title, how long do I need to wait after spraying weeds with forefront until I can top the paddock off clean? I don’t want to cut the weed off before the spray has made it to the root. Mainly thistles I’m spraying for.

What's the best clover-safe product to hit them. Ley is approx 5 weeks and not too far off being ready to graze.

I am thinking of getting 4 acres of old grass land Direct drilled with turnips after second cut silage.
Winters are wet here and land wouldn’t be the lightest but this would be one of my driest fields in winter. Never grazed a forage crop over winter here before.
I am wondering would I get...
Hi, anybody got any idea of what silage over a weighbridge is making? We’ve fertilised and sprayed and have a weighbridge on site. Looking to sell it by the tonne with the buyer paying for the machinery side of things. Location is North West.
I put in a field of rape and Italian last year with the intention this year to cut once and then spray off before short second cut to put in a long term.
It hasn’t been shut out long and grass is looking well as I also scratched more italian in this spring to make sure but now there’s a few...
Been given a recommendation for week control in spring barley.
