    Nitrogen on beans

    Anyone ever applied liquid N or N/Mg to beans to perk them up a bit? Look cold/pale/weevily.

    Will we be ploughing for re seeding in the future?

    With farmers taking the blame for wrecking the planet do you think we will be ploughing up permanent grassland to re seed?

    Biostimulants

    What are people's views/experiences of using biostimulants as a replacement for fungicides? Particularly Scyon. I questioned the inclusion of it from agronomist today and said it would replace ctl.

    No significant amount of rain in the forecast. Should we be getting concerned yet?

    Lime spreading rates.

    We've been talking about reduced lime spreading rates on the Beef & Lamb price tracker & thought it deserves it's own thread. @livestock 1 @Hilly @Highland Mule @Cab-over Pete @Skintagain @Kiwi Pete @Poorbuthappy Sorry if I've missed anyone who was in that conversation. Just to catch up...

    Bitersaltz vs liquid Magnesium ?

    Having seen decent results from Magnesium with fungicide applications here I'm pretty convinced that along with Manganese t's a micronutrient worth using routinely on our soil types. Bitersaltz has been our cheap go-to product but it's not the most users friendly when filling a 6000L sprayer...

    Spraying with a frost at night.

    Got some fungicide, growth reg and manganese to go on wheat and barley but keep getting -1 for a few hours early morning. I’m holding off at the moment, are people still spraying and do they have any bad scorching

    Copper on spring barley

    Going to give the 2-3 leaf spring barley 2litres/ha manganese, is it worth putting 0.25litre/ha copper in or is it too soon?

    Mixing anything with spring Grassweed herbs in wheat

    I know we were always told not to mix CTL and PGRs with Atlantis etc and I have always followed this (don't need a PGR after anyway!) with the exception of trace elements but there's a windy week in prospect and late drilled ww has some YR so dare I add a splash of teb with the horus? Thanks

    How can subclinical mineral deficiency occur post-calving?

    Written by Agriland Team The weeks of spring are a critical period for farms in Ireland aiming to get cows back in calf quickly to ensure a compact-calving interval. Teagasc research shows nationally only 58% of the dairy herd calves in the first six weeks of the calving season and a calving...
