So we’ve only got Defy - see attached, but having applied this in the autumn we’ve now got ryegrass come back through so we must be resistant to that as well.
Tried ploughing and it doesn’t work.
Tried No-Till and that doesn’t work.

How is everyone getting on, still to wet?
I’m growing rye for the first time this year. I’ve got hybrid variety Serafino.
It follows wheat, straw baled, stubble raked, drilled last week of September with JD750a.
The issue I have is that it is thin in the swath rows. I take it that it doesn’t like the toxins from the wheat chaff. Has...

Just wondering if I sowed vetches early autumn (aug/sept) and mowed and baled/clamped (April).
If I direct drilled pea and barley mix would the mowed off vetches regrow?
Same question for autumn sown triticale. Mowed (after stem extension but before flag leaf) and baled/clamped, pea mix...

Can anyone explain the right way of soya production? having an argument with someone who says 90% is grown for livestock and only 10% for humans but is the oil not removed from it for human use and what's left is soya as we know it ?
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.
We have a product here (one called Vario) that has the same make up as dicurane used to have.
I have some here for use but never managed to get any on.
When I used to use it in the uk, it was always in November (usually seemed to be during children in need week) and actually I can’t remember how...

It's been wet and mild, other than barley nothing got rolled here ............................. yet no a single pellet used? not a sign of even the slightest bit of grazing
Just me ? or is this just what farming without OSR is like ?
Does anyone on here grow winter triticale and if so what sort of seed rates do you plant at please? I've been asked to plant some for a friend but they only have enough seed at the moment for 125kg/ha or 1cwt/ac old money which sounds quite low to me.
