    Thinking of growing winter beans...

    .... but i know nothing about them! I've got a market for them, and the straw. I've grown wheat three times on the same piece of land and thought it could do with change / rest. Beans also give the land a bit of nitrogen... I've got my own kit to do it. Where not talking big acres here...

    Could univoq cause yellow flag leaves?

    Sprayed my wheat on 28th may, two fields got just univoq at 1.25L/ha and the rest got 1L/ha univoq and 0.1 talius. Not long after they were sprayed I noticed that where there was any spray overlap the flag leave went a bit yellow and it's never recovered. Just got worse and the the whole field...

    Grown this variety of WW in the past and really liked it, but was told no longer available by Frontier a few years ago. I've now discovered its still out there being grown. So, anyone growing it in the DD situation and hows it compare with Skyfall on disease nowadays ? Thanks

    Skyfall T4

    Looking at Skyfall this morning, despite being very clean thus far, some yellow rust is starting to come on leaf 2, T3 was just tebuconazole about ten days ago, I know its getting late but a T4 going on Monday as soon as it arrives.

    Anyone seeing many or sprayed for them this year? Seeing quite a few the last few evenings. Agronomist says it’s past the stage of worrying about them! Is that the case mid flowering.

    Black bean aphids on beans, worth controlling now?

    As above. NO flowers left so no risk to bees. Don't normally treat because of this and usually worse on headlands, but these are right through the crop now. Above 10% headland threshold but not there in yet in the centre of field. Plants with big colonies on are really suffering but I guess they...

    T3 Earwash

    Who is doing one and what are you using . Forecast after Wednesday is looking dry and warmer, so wondering if there’s much to be gained, other than piece of mind .

    Univoq / Iconiq drip stop issues?

    Anyone having issues with drip stop valve rubbers failing when spraying Corteva’s Univoq, Iconiq or similar? Seems to a bit of an issue among sprayer drivers having widespread DSV failure on FB.
