    Legal advice required please

    Combine curse vontinues

    So, escape from the MF and go Claas, surely can’t be a bad move. Assured by the vendor all was good and been checked over by a recognised company pre sale as he wanted it sold in full working order.

    Revystar Experience

    We have used Revystar on Spring Barley at "paint brush" for ramularia and it is disappointing. We used Adexar type (old stock) as a T2 on wheat and I thought we had too much septoria. My independent agronomist brought some plants from a neighbour who had used Revystar (same variety) and it was...

    Are you all depressed ?

    I've been lucky enough to have a bit of a family holiday recently with lockdown restrictions ending and I've also spent a lot more time with none farming friends and reduced my time talking farming online a fair bit. After a period where that has been hard to do it's easy to forget just how...

    Best drift reduction nozzle for glyphosate ?

    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...

    Cutting the Wrong Field

    I cut a field of hay a few miles away and next door were some lovely silage fields. The owner farms 3 miles away and will never be there apart from silage time. I wondered if anyone has cut, ploughed or sprayed the wrong field because nobody was around. Or maybe cut and baled it BECAUSE the...
