Question from a dairy farmer for you corn men
WB drilled 10th sept after plough & combination into cracking seed bed
Very quick & even germination. Reasonable amount of rain since but ground still "sound"
Last couple of weeks sporadic patches of yellow appearing. Probably worse at ends.
Over the last two years there has been an evolution in the way that soil nutrient mapping is carried out. This has been driven by the launch of TerraMap by Hutchinsons in 2019. Terramap came at the perfect timing for farmers looking for that next level of accuracy in understanding their soils in...
Just watched a YouTube video of Mike Mitchell in Canada starting his harvest. The drought has meant there's virtually no crop but he's out there with the combines trying to collect up enough lentils for some seed to plant next season. It sounds like its not a rare event either.
Got me wondering...
Apologies if this is wrong section but thought cropping would get a better response. I drilled some turnip/forage rape mix direct into sprayed off pasture. Made sure I told him the risks with csfb. Anyway got a phone call asking my advice on weather he should spray for csfb I told him it would...
What are everyone's thoughts then? Heard 'massive' on a different thread from south of us.
May just be us, but mid/later season wheats(altitude or drill date/variety) hit by cool & wet at flowering-michodochium 15-20% florets on some ears, despite very robust (+PTZ) head spray. Earlier...
Now this may be a cat among the pigeons post but looking ahead and having used SP seed dressings for many years now for our seed treatments for wheat and following on from discussions with the agronomist and Soil chap I wondered whether anyone has used and seen any noticeable benefit...

How are people doing with their maize fertiliser?
Type timing and total please.
Have done it differently the last few years due to circumstance not plan. Always drill 25 units with the seed but have been an additional 25-75 units either trop dressing at 18 inches high or working it into the...
Been having some tissue tests done and it seems we are coming up short on Boron. Anyone on here using Epso BorTop? Might be an easy step for me to replace the planned EpsoTop with BorTop. Anyone any practical experience on their crops and have an idea of the price please.
Been given a recommendation for week control in spring barley.

Seems a heavy dose to me.....just the usual suspects to deal with and not too big atvthr moment. Advice needed. Thanks
Hello farmers, I am new here and like to say hello. Could anybody help me with this question: I would like to buy a massey Ferguson seeder 30 with 4 meter wide. I am planning to use it on my no-till land, it is light and sandy soil. I am writing from north germany. Do you think this could work...
Ok, what are your plans for T1?
Back in April when it was looking like another drought I was thinking keep it cheap! However we’ve now had A LOT of rain and 90% of the wheats are looking like they have some good potential. So, my and my agronomist thoughts are to go with a more robust T1
Has anyone got red/brown tipped leaves. Agronomist thinks its the cold dry weather we've had, I hope anyway!
He said other clients have the same.

First post on thefarmingforum.
We are a beef farm on former sandy heathland that we now graze and cut for hay. Soil is very light and sandy with some clayey bits but this is mostly SSSI. pH low 5’s so have just limed our two best forage fields at 3t/acre with the 2mm to dust stuff.....I...
nearly may and yet to use a fungicide, crops spotless clean
cold, dry - could this be the first year we don’t use this group of chemicals at all ?
rain could change things yet but it will need to be significant now to rebalance smd’s
anyone else not applied a fungicide to wheat or barley...
