    Pre em for expected wild oats.

    We got a big second flush of wild oats in beans this year, and now into wheat ,I want the best control possible. Usually use liberator at .6l but if a sniff of pdm would be beneficial it can have it. Opinions welcome.

    Clean stubbles?

    Anybody else finding stubbles are almost perfectly clean this year? A month after harvest almost all stubbles are almost perfectly clean. Doubt I’ll need to be using much roundup this autumn which is one benefit given the current situation.

    When is the latest you have (successfully) drilled grass seed.

    As above. We have a field sprayed off a good three weeks now. We have had a little rain. But not enough to encourage me to drill it yet. How long can I wait ?

    So who has started drilling ?

    Normally try and drill first ten days of October but last two years have been caught by heavy storms just after drilling that has gone on for months, thinking of going early this time, what's are others doing ?

    How much are you going to plant this year?

    With the good wheat prices currently, are we going to try to see more wheat planted?

    Ryegrass controls stack up

    Strip till winter barley - hybrid v conventional

    First full year with a Claydon. Growing a small area of winter barley - conventional is our preference, however, does anybody have any experience with conventional v hybrid in a wide row scenario? Would the spring vigour of the hybrid help close up the rows for weed suppression? Or will the...

    Winter barley v spring barley

    I’ve 30 acres been in permanent grass for years needing freshened up. Given feed price and straw prices I’m thinking I should put some barley in and produce something of my own. My thoughts on winter v spring is I will have crop off far earlier than spring stuff to get a reseed put in plus my...

    Spring wheat weed control strategy

    Thinking of swapping winter wheat for spring wheat here just to make life a bit easier in the autumn. But having never grown it and not asked the agronomist yet as I’d like a bit of knowledge, what is everybody doing weed control wise particularly for blackgrass and ryegrass? Pre-em? Emergence...

    OSR 2021

    Having researched as much information about the flea beetle as possible and been interested in the current crops in the ground, which generally look good. Do you think we’re starting to see more natural predators? I’ve recently read a paper from an Entomologist who suggested it would take 10...

    Worsening blackgrass/ryegrass problem.

    I'm in my fifth year of strip tilling following a more traditional plough/power harrow based system. I had some decent results in the first few years but the last two wet autumn /winters have not been so great. My main problem is the blackgrass is getting out of hand, I don't think my...

    Blackgrass chemical attack

    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.
