    Blackgrass

    Just sat pondering the dreaded blackgrass while I enjoy a Saturday morning brew. I have been trying to think of the way the weed grows throughout the season and if it has weakness? For the life of me I can't think what this weakness might be to even begin to exploit this as a means of control...

    Worsening blackgrass/ryegrass problem.

    I'm in my fifth year of strip tilling following a more traditional plough/power harrow based system. I had some decent results in the first few years but the last two wet autumn /winters have not been so great. My main problem is the blackgrass is getting out of hand, I don't think my...

    Blackgrass chemical attack

    I know there’s another general BG thread but this is just a particular question about chemicals. Basically what are your ‘chemical’ approaches to BG. We aren’t doing a proper job so looking for ideas please.

    Axial Pro

    What rate to guarantee wild oat control in spring barley if crop is GS30. Given moisture will 0.6l/ha do or do you need 0.82l/ha (equivalent to old Axial at 0.45l/ha)?

    Black grass 2021

    Up until now we have not had a problem with black grass. But one field seems to have got away on us. It’s first wheat after osr and would expect it yield about 10t/ha. There is not enough grass to effect the yield but too much to pull by hand. The area is about 12ac which would be about 4% of...

    Late wild oat spray.

    I sprayed some of my wheat with it's T1 last week and added 0.1l/ha moddus grudgingly. It's now looking more scorched than I would like to see and now I'm faced with the decision as to whether to add topik I think for wild oats in with the T2 when the time comes or leave it. Normal treatment is...

    Recommend Me A Milling Wheat

    Heavy land milling wheat variety needed. Needs to stand; thresh; and have an aggressive growth type. Needs to be fairly "showy" in early spring so I can feel good about it. Thoughts? Gp1,2,3 all fine.

    Early moves to target wild oats

    Growers and agronomists now face the dilemma of an early application to remove competition from emerged wild oats, or holding off to allow more weeds to germinate. Syngenta grassweeds technical manager, Georgina Wood, urges Axial Pro treatment as soon as conditions allow, once weeds are...

    S Oats or S Linseed

    Between the devil and the deep, have Oats and Linseed to drill, but a field of OSR that was destined to be sprayed off has got to the stage its now worth keeping. So need to cut one of the crops areas. As I've grown neither in the past its a coin toss unless the collective wisdom of TFF can...

    Oat milk

    How many litres of milk do you get from a tonne of oats? Oatly have put forward proposals to open a factory in Peterborough to produce 300 million litres of oat milk. Is this an opportunity for UK arable?

    Cleavers

    I have a small patch of oats which due to low rate liberator have no weeds👍, except cleavers. I don’t have a starane type product but I do still have a lot of MCPA and 24d which I mix for grass fields. Would on of those or a mix kill cleavers? The labels only talk about perennial weeds🤷‍♂️ tia
