Learning from the successes of growers’ black-grass control programmes gives a raft of integrated cultural and herbicide strategies that can also be used to hit back at increasing ryegrass populations, advises Syngenta Technical Manager, Georgina Wood.
“Key to that success is stacking up as...
Any crew with experience of the Tow and Fert units, or similar?
Will be using on grass.
Any comments on their use, efficacy etc?
Thought I'd start one to make myself feel better.
Was on grass most of last week, was telling myself that the wheat volunteers would had made the moisture in the WB too high anyway🤥.
Plenty of rain over weekend and looks a showery week 🙄
Hi, this might be an odd question because I'm an engineer, not a farmer...
How do people make sure they are spraying at the correct application rate on small sprayers (<500l like this one: https://www.silvannz.co.nz/silvan-sprayers/eco-500l-linkage-sprayer/)?
From what I've seen they just have...
I'm looking into doing the above, I've been reading anything I can find on here and some of the FB pages.
I'm just after any little bits of advice really, I think I've decided on chafer dribble bars as the ground is undulating so keeping a constant boom height won't be easy, dribble bars should...
We use a fair bit of Motif and X-Change with Lo-drift Hypro nozzles, but find this mix can be very slow to settle and produces a lot of fine droplets that rise up in higher temperatures. Pressure is kept down to 2 bar and it may all be down to spraying when cooler.
With drift management in mind...
Evening all, We are looking to change our mounted Kuhn Optis 1200L 12M 2018 sprayer. This has been a seriously good machine both strong, well designed and more important than anything 100% reliable. It hasn’t got a serious amount of mod cons just electri on/off, hydraulic slant & hydraulic up &...

Recently sold an atv flail to a valued Yorkie customer. The deal was very sharp and both parties happy. Machine even passed muster with his finance department and chief operator (wife).
Today he's phoned saying machine no good. He's cut half off North Yorkshire and the belt has snapped. Yes...
Trying an experiment on thistles that have come into a multi species award using a weed wiper, but have never used one before. It’s a carpet version, and just wondering how exactly it works to avoid dripping & still maybe get a kill on the thistles.
How long do you leave nozzles spraying and...
I got a new weedwiper from Logic to tow with the quad this season. I used it with MCPA (pasture master) a few weeks ago no problem. Put some roundup through it to do rushes and some thistlex. Now I am back on MCPA the chem seems to 'curdle' in the tank and block up the filters and nozzles within...
Crop irrigation is an integral part of growing vegetables. This is because 80-95% of any vegetable is water!
A plant can suffer stress from lack of water as quickly as 3 days after the most recent rain. In places like the high plains where rain can be sporadic or even sparse, crop irrigation has...
Does anyone use one of these? I see you can get them up to 25’ thought it might be handy for steep/wet/rough bits mostly using mcpa. Just wondered if they worked well or do they not carry enough liquid for that amount of coverage?
We're moving onto a small acre of land with a house in the middle, surrounded by fields. Cabbage and wheat I think.
Please excuse my uneducated stance and questions but I'm struggling to get info from the local famers.
Lived in the area for 17 years but this new house is just outside...
