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. My independent agronomist brought some plants from a neighbour who had used Revystar (same variety) and it was...

Following an exceptionally dry spring in 2020, many were hoping for a more ‘normal’ spell of spring weather in 2021.
However, the weather over the past month has been predominantly dry for most, along with being exceptionally cold, with the Met Office provisionally...
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

Growers are being urged to consider a robust T2 fungicide application as septoria pressure in UK wheat crops is expected to build in the coming weeks. Charlotte Cunningham reports. Laboratory analysis of hundreds of plant samples has highlighted significant...
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...
Just been doing the sheets for last application of fert to w and s barley. What rates of nitrogen are you applying to your cereal crops?
220kgsN/ha w wheat
200kgsN/ha w barley
125kgsN/ha s barley
Adjusted for any manure/slurry applied.
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
Given the late drilling date and the amount of rain that’s gone on them I’m pleasantly pleased with the state of my crops.
I do have two small fields that are below par but most are looking well.
How are others looking?
Wheat and barley below, no rape this year but locally it looks well.
Am looking at options for soya . I know a lot use it on cereals do you rate it as our agronomist is not a fan of most likely wants to sell more expensive stuff . It is cheap source of folia sulphur and mag.
Opinions on it would be appreciated .
Mod Note: New thread created by moving some posts.
Haha - every second post on TFF seems to be about problems with townies, cyclists, dog walkers, trespassers etc etc
The further from all that the better I reckon
I couldn't cope with having non farming neighbours . . .
Just mentioned in Agricultural Matters it might be interesting if everyone just took a picture today of what you were doing, however mundane it maybe, would show the variety of work carried out, will start tomorrow.
