As title says, do you stop because of bright sun shine or when it gets too hot ?
Reason for asking, today isn’t that hot (21 degrees) but unbroken bright sunshine and tomorrow will be very hot and sunny, just wondering what people’s thoughts are.
I've some very lush spring barley....It's around gs 30/31....was thinking of pgr of either 1l/ccc/ha with 0.15/0.2 of moddus or canopy around 0.3/0.4....any help would be appreciated....had plenty of N so needs shortened a bit going forward and thickening of the stems as the tiller count is...
Ok, what are your plans for T1?
Back in April when it was looking like another drought I was thinking keep it cheap! However we’ve now had A LOT of rain and 90% of the wheats are looking like they have some good potential. So, my and my agronomist thoughts are to go with a more robust T1
Has anyone got red/brown tipped leaves. Agronomist thinks its the cold dry weather we've had, I hope anyway!
He said other clients have the same.
Sprayed 10 days ago with
1.25 l Chlormequat
0.5 l Tubosan
0.1 l Moddus
0.4 l Starane
21g Ally Max
Started spraying after 10 in the morning and...
nearly may and yet to use a fungicide, crops spotless clean
cold, dry - could this be the first year we don’t use this group of chemicals at all ?
rain could change things yet but it will need to be significant now to rebalance smd’s
anyone else not applied a fungicide to wheat or barley...
Had a really busy day today, and made my first ever spray cock up,
Was putting some Magphos and amino on my wheat today, and after talking with agronomist a few weeks ago I said send out some teb for the gleam and a bit of moddus or equivalent for a couple of really forward fields.
Just wondered what people’s thoughts on cutting growth regs for T1. My current recommendation is 0.1 moddus and a litre of 3C. I have some 1/2 decent looking w wheat and w barley. We use all the straw ourselves. With the current cold weather and it not exactly romping away with spring growth I...
I'm not an arable man but keep an eye on hat's happening and am interested in the way the industry is headed.
A fella near us has been sowing spring barley after getting caught out in the back end and left with a few hundred unsown acres.
Most fields were disced twice, subsoiled, roterrad...
Have used 0.5l/ha Jaunt (Fluoxastrobin(75g/l) Prothioconazole(150g/l)
Trifloxystrobin(75g/l)) the last couple of years with good results( have both been very dry springs with low levels of disease). With the loss of CTL what are people using this year?
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
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
Modus was around as newish technology when I left the uk 20 years ago as a growth regulator. It’s just been released here in Manitoba, we grow around a1000 acres of spring wheat and our soils are such that we can push for higher yields with a good grocery package. Trouble is being spring wheat...
I was wanting to improve some of the permanent cow pastures and was wondering how well clover will take just direct drilled in, not the sort of field I want to turn over but would like to put more clover into it. Does it take well like this or not really?
