Don't drop guard against yellow rust and Septoria
Recent cold, dry weather may have reduced the immediate disease pressure in cereal crops, but growers cannot drop their guard against yellow rust and Septoria at the main spring fungicide timings, leading agronomy firm Hutchinsons warns...
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.
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...
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?
Having seen decent results from Magnesium with fungicide applications here I'm pretty convinced that along with Manganese t's a micronutrient worth using routinely on our soil types. Bitersaltz has been our cheap go-to product but it's not the most users friendly when filling a 6000L sprayer...
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
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.
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.
How are we finding early yields did see some optimism on FWI site saying yields better than anticipated ........?!BS
predicting 10-15% reduction in yields as an average .
Had a colleague lift a fair tonnage Norfolk way with a disappointing 18 t acre adjusted .
Not looking forward to lifting...
After a moment of ebay button madness back in November, I have another project.
Sold as needing front axle rebuild but the cab is in excellent order and I'd rather spend time (money) on the oily bits than weld rust to rust.
Blade off and sold to pay haulage from Cambridge.
That front axle...
There appears to be a lot of talk about foliar nutrition at present. Having never applied such products before what are people's thoughts, is there a best timing e.g. T1 or to add a little with each sprayer pass rather than one big hit? Do people tissue test before to see what is required or...
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.
Another thread to help TFF members track prices.
