Early Disease control in OSR
Use disease risk forecasts to plan appropriate and timely spray programmes for oilseed rape crops this autumn is the advice of Dr David Ellerton, technical director with Hutchinsons.
Light Leaf Spot and phoma stem canker are the two main autumn diseases of Oilseed...
I have heard from my agronomist today that someone not far from me PE9 postcode, has been harvesting extase with a yield of about 2 t/ha. Apparently KwS are looking into this. Has anyone else had any problems.?
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...
We have started a buying group for TFF members and readers so we can group together and get deals. It does not matter if you are in another buying group already - this one is free to join and has zero commitments.
If the traditional buying groups were too expensive or restrictive for the way...
Has anyone got red/brown tipped leaves. Agronomist thinks its the cold dry weather we've had, I hope anyway!
He said other clients have the same.
Sprayed 10 days ago with
1.25 l Chlormequat
0.5 l Tubosan
0.1 l Moddus
0.4 l Starane

Started spraying after 10 in the morning and...
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...
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...
I know we were always told not to mix CTL and PGRs with Atlantis etc and I have always followed this (don't need a PGR after anyway!) with the exception of trace elements but there's a windy week in prospect and late drilled ww has some YR so dare I add a splash of teb with the horus? Thanks
Been recommended the use of iodus (Laminarin active) at T0 for septoria protection based in south west so high disease pressure.
Are many others planning on using these bio-fungicides at T0 to replace CTL, with folpet not looking like a cost effective choice.
Dont see these bio-fungicides...
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.
As part of Farm Compare, it has a basic lookup for crop protection products to allow you to lookup products and find equivalents. We get this data from the HSE.
What I didn't realise is how fast this data changes. over the past 17 months we have been monitoring the list, there have been 346...
THE IMPORTANCE OF MULTI-SITES
History clearly tells us that single-site fungicides used without the addition of a multi-site can quickly succumb to resistance evolution. Alternative multi-sites such as folpet can be used to manage resistance and extend the life of existing chemistry.
So this year wasn't bad and didn't really show up loss of CTL. Going forward are there any EAMUs for existing products on the horizon or maybe possibly new products?
AFAIK I know current approved triazoles and strobs have limited effects on Choc spot. My hunch (and a quick google) is that...
In a year that keeps on giving, I'm now finding quite a lot of Take-all in first wheats, predominantly on the secondary tillers but some areas where all the plants are affected. This is March drilled Belepi after V. Peas. Anyone else got similar or am I the 'chosen one'!
New to this forum and am a smallholder not a farmer so I hope you won't mind me asking this.
Can anyone tell me how harmful it could have been to breathe in fungicide spray straight after it was sprayed? Walked in it for a minute or so after the sprayer went straight past me at close quarters...
Got some cans of tebuconazole to use up, much reduced wheat area, so was thinking of using on Spring Barley.
I know its good on rusts, but does it do much on Rhynco and net blotch, they are both label diseases for moderate control.
At present the crop unsurprisingly is very clean with just Ctl...
