    I know there’s another general BG thread but this is just a particular question about chemicals. Basically what are your ‘chemical’ approaches to BG. We aren’t doing a proper job so looking for ideas please.

    Broadway Star Performance 2021

    Performance has been utterly pants on Sterile brome this year. Previous years it kills most of them, but always leaves a few stunted plants to return seed and continue the cycle.

    Forage Brassicas and CSFB

    Do forage brassicas suffer from csfb in the same way as osr? I am in Mid Lincolnshire and have never had any problem getting the crop of osr established, it is in the Spring where the rot (literally) sets in. A forage crop would have been eaten by then. I have no luck planting kale in May, it is...
