    Wild oats in Spring Barley

    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...

    Gs4 mixes yield?

    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...

    Axial pro and su

    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...

    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?

    Any BLW herbicide to use on ww after flowering?

    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? Tia Mark

    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?

    Anyone rolling spring barley a 2nd time now it’s rained?

    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.

    Spring barley 2020

    Is it worth growing, the sense is every man and his dog is putting loads in, but the I read online many have drilled up with WW, driving through Suffolf the other day and there's lots more WW in than around Peterborough so is it worth it? Is there any seed? How much is seed???

    Rolling Spring Barley post emergence

    Been snatching drilling S Barley with a combo drill between showers over the last few weeks. Not much got rolled before it rained. When is it safe to roll it once it’s up ?
