    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

    UV treatment sanitation

    Is UV treatment of water enough or do others use further water sanitation into Broilers. How dose one ascertain whether there is a need for added sanitation solutions into water supply?

    Modus was around as newish technology when I left the uk 20 years ago as a growth regulator.

Trouble is being spring wheat...

    BYDV spring treatment?

    Evidence of infection in mid October drilled WB, don’t want secondary infection but guess given temperatures and low aphid forecast not worthwhile/not not good for environment. Conflicting advice from agronomists. Not treated in the autumn if that makes a difference. Anecdotally I find hybrids...

    Bio-fungicides at T0

    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. Dont see these bio-fungicides...

    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.

    What's your preferred trace element mix?

    I usually buy an IBC of Manganese every year and lash a bit on with the sprayer. I've done tissue tests in the past because I felt they were relatively dear and I wasn't gaining a lot. But I still use the manganese for the barley even though I'm not sure its any measurable difference. But given...

    A Novel Approach to Crop Nutrition and Biostimulation

    The timing of nutritional inputs to the maize crop is usually early in the season, either applied to the seedbed pre-drilling or early post-emergence up to the 4- 6 leaf stage. Nitrogen (N), phosphate (P) & potash (K) and foliar applications of micronutrients are important at this early timing...
