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
Anybody any experience of applying glyphosate post drilling and had a problem due to it catching the emerging crop?
I have done a couple of acres of beet as a trial just before the seedlings break through the surface in a particularly weedy patch so I guess I’ll soon know but just wondered if...

Long story short is that I’m a new entrant dairy farmer who sold most of our beef cattle to fund the project hence we are down in numbers and have planted some winter barley which will be a useful feed. As per below picture I think it has potential and I don’t want to ruin it. Are there any...
