I sprayed some of my wheat with it's T1 last week and added 0.1l/ha moddus grudgingly. It's now looking more scorched than I would like to see and now I'm faced with the decision as to whether to add topik I think for wild oats in with the T2 when the time comes or leave it. Normal treatment is...
As humans, we have an innate tendency to take what we have for granted. Very often, we don’t appreciate the true meaning or value of something, until it’s gone. Then sadly it can all too often be too late.
Barely two weeks into the final Brexit trade deal, I dare say there are many, many...

Belt and braces,
1250g/ha Pendimethalin, 120g/ha Flufenacet and 30g/ha Diflufenican = £35/ha
Avadex granules = £40/ha
Not applying the Avadex is a big saving, what do others do in blackgrass fields?
I’m an arable farmer from Lincolnshire with a growing interest in livestock. Mainly to spread the risk from solely growing arable annual plants, to grow perennials and build soils. Ive done a fair bit of reading largely around regen ag methods and have come up with a production system in my head...

time has come, again, for autumn re-seeds. Interested to know what, farmers are planning variety wise.
Had some interesting discussions, recently with seed reps. We have had an awful 3dry summers, on the trot, and grass, has been very short, both in quantity and life !
Rep in this morning...

I have a block of land in SB, HSS drilled with the Freeflow straight into overwintered cultivation after it greened up and was sprayed off.
Seed came from very clean block on a separate farm, the aim was a cheap grow.
Where I drilled has historically been bad for wild oats, so I succumbed to the...
I’m very interested in having some gs4 mixes for mid tier scheme. The payment looks very attractive and I like the idea of soil conditioning. At the moment we have 2 year Italian ryegrass leys grazed in winter and till 1sr April then cut 3 times using 86kgs of N per cut. How many acres will I...

I've sprayed my spring barley with a su (finish SX or answer SX) in the last few days and now i have a rec to spray axial pro for wild oats. I've been told i need to keep the rates up as the su will effect how it works. How long a gap is best for least crop damage, how long before the rate can...
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?
I have a cracking field of ww, (a result in itself) after sunflowers.
It is at the stage of just starting to flower (a worry that we have non stop rain after 2012) and now, the volunteer sunflowers are getting to worrying numbers.
Is there anything that can be applied this late?
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?
As above , the idea is that it will crush some clods in bare patches ,thereby creating seed to soil contact? I say that as looks to have been a job to conserve moisture where crops have been planted conventionally.
