    Have any of you guys on here tried the above products. If so did you get a yield boost, and more importantly was it cost effective?

    Autumn Guide - Learning Lessons from the Past

    THE IMPORTANCE OF MULTI-SITES History clearly tells us that single-site fungicides used without the addition of a multi-site can quickly succumb to resistance evolution. Alternative multi-sites such as folpet can be used to manage resistance and extend the life of existing chemistry. THE...

    Future Chocolate spot control

    So this year wasn't bad and didn't really show up loss of CTL. Going forward are there any EAMUs for existing products on the horizon or maybe possibly new products? AFAIK I know current approved triazoles and strobs have limited effects on Choc spot. My hunch (and a quick google) is that...

    17 month old Elatus....

    came partnered with Alto Elite march 2019. Didn't get used last summer as unnecessary. Looking even more unnecessary this year....was to be partnered with a bit of teb and PTZ (mostly milling wheat) as a combined flag and ear. Have 80% of full rate !! Store it for another year - i'm not so...

    Anybody NOT t2-ing, t1-ing etc because of frosts

    Unusually cold this week. Another frost this morning, so at least 3 this week now. Have T2 on wheat to do, T1 on SB and some beans to tidy up. All mixes containing a herbicide. Anybody not applying with such low night temps?

    Spring barley looking poor...

    Some of the stuff i've sown is, some is ok, some is terrible! It looks like i've sown it too thin, but I've not, it is desperate for a good downpour, I was thinking while driving from them earlier, there's not been drop of proper rain since they went in the ground. How's yours looking?

    T2, anybody using Revystar??

    Is anybody going to use Revystar at T2, would a low rate work as well as a good rate of the slightly older chemistry if you spend the same ££. My best wheat is Extase, so Revysol would be a bit OTT, but I have got a decent block of Crusoe which might benefit.

    Foxtrot/Oskar or axial

    I'm going to need to treat my spring barley for wild oats and I was wondering if theres much of a saving by using foxtrot instead of axial. I've never used foxtrot before is it as safe and kind to the crop as axial?

    Cereals...gross margin at different yeilds?

    Have been thinking recently...surely it isn't always the case that the greatest gross margin occurs at greatest yeild? Yet in the farming press, it seems that it is? We rarely see articles about lower input systems. Sorry for the random and disjoin6 thread, just thought it might be an...

    No rain at all here ATM. All quality wheats, but I'm thinking 0.75 - 1.0 l teb. Can't bring myself to spend £24 ha + on a prothio based spray. Any views?

    Total wheat spend

    Looking at the t1 thread spend varies massively. What is everyone spending on pesticides , everything being equal I will be about 220/ha this year, thats everything from herbicides to roundup if required.

    Have flag leaf poking out by about an inch in 6th October drilled Siskin. Anyone care to venture how long until its likely to be ready for T2? @Fromebridge, is NIAB doing leaf emergence predictions for T2 timings (I guess it's not so tricky as T1)? Thinking of doing the equivalent of 1 - 1.25l...
