    Wheat expectations?

    What are everyone's thoughts then? Heard 'massive' on a different thread from south of us. May just be us, but mid/later season wheats(altitude or drill date/variety) hit by cool & wet at flowering-michodochium 15-20% florets on some ears, despite very robust (+PTZ) head spray. Earlier...

    Revystar Experience

    We have used Revystar on Spring Barley at "paint brush" for ramularia and it is disappointing. We used Adexar type (old stock) as a T2 on wheat and I thought we had too much septoria.

    Hello all, I am currently in the position of working a stable job but the opportunity is on the horizon of the small family owned arable farm. I know my way around a tractor but have never actually ‘done’ farming. Is taking it on myself viable? All the machinery is bought and paid for albeit...

    What new feed wheat?

    I need to replace Skyfall for this autumn drilling. It’s breaking then to rust and has had its day now. Will carry Graham for another year, hopefully more. So what varieties are worth looking at? Note I’m in the SW so good septoria scores are a must!

    Variety breakdown

    How many years do you think a variety holds in for? Grown skyfall and Graham for a few years but skyfall is suffering from rust. What’s interesting is home saved skyfall is fairing better fresh C1 seed a seed contract. Graham is all home saved and little sign of rust. Note I’m in the SW so...
