Been recommended the use of iodus (Laminarin active) at T0 for septoria protection based in south west so high disease pressure.
Are many others planning on using these bio-fungicides at T0 to replace CTL, with folpet not looking like a cost effective choice.

Did peas and barley last year, good yield after drought, but worked out considerably expensive (min £55 per bale).

If you’ve applied a herbicide for example to stop blackgrass emergence, how much does rolling “break the seal”? I suppose timing comes into it , if you do it just before the crop covers over then is it so bad?
Know it's miles early. What's he collectives thoughts now CTL has passed on. Is Iodus (Laminarin?) any use on Septoria and Mildew (plenty of peatground) or is it a case of Folpet with fingers firmly crossed? In the West so Septoria is the main target.
looking at re drilling some old grasses to make hay/haylage, what type of grass lay should i drill? what seed would you recommend and how much will the seed cost me for 10 acres worth? thanks in advance
May end up with some this year, what variety stands/combines easily, etc?
