    Could kick myself (moddus cock up)

    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. Anyway...

    To Growth reg or not to growth reg ?

    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...

    Sustainable?

    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...

    Planet Spring barley fungicide

    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?

    T1

    Ours we be there end of next week I expect, especially when in warms up. No T0 and no disease about here. What are people thinking? SDHI? Anything will be partnered with Folpet.

    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

    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

    Modus

    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...

    Will clover take well when direct drilled into permanent pasture.

    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?

    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...

    OSR growth reg

    What’s the best, and what’s the best value for money. Never used one before, but gone back to drilling conventional at 12kg/ha in mid August.

    Anyone growing hybrid rye?

    I’m growing rye for the first time this year. I’ve got hybrid variety Serafino. It follows wheat, straw baled, stubble raked, drilled last week of September with JD750a. The issue I have is that it is thin in the swath rows. I take it that it doesn’t like the toxins from the wheat chaff. Has...

    T0

    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.

    How to kill Rye grass

    Axial Pro does nothing. Would Pacifica Plus maybe do the job this spring?

    Latest date for Winter Beans??

    Got 2t of Tundra and a field I never managed to get drilled in the Autumn, just about dry enough to get the drill out, is it too late? Guess up the seedrate and bang them in? Know of some locally planted two weeks ago on drier ground. Thoughts??

    When to apply fertiliser to grassland

    Hi All, This has likely been discussed ad infinitum but here we go again as I can't seem to find a relaxant thread on the subject. When to apply 20-10-10 to grassland now that T sum 200 is no longer published? OK conventional wisdom states "March time" but is there anything more scientific out...
