    Is it way too late?

    To drill winter barley now? Long story short (probably won’t be 😂), just finish drilling the the last 50ac block of wheat today and I’m left with a little 5ac field that was supposed to be the last field and destined for a first wheat. Anyway turns out I’m a bag of seed short 🤦🏻‍♂️ don’t...

    Zyatt

    How are people getting on with zyatt since it was released? Protein? Yield (grain and straw), bushel? Fungicide spend?

    Extase potential problems

    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.?

    Revystar Experience

    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...

    What new feed wheat?

    I need to replace Skyfall for this autumn drilling. It’s breaking then to rust and has had its day now. Will carry Graham for another year, hopefully more. So what varieties are worth looking at? Note I’m in the SW so good septoria scores are a must!

    T3

    Anyone warrant doing a T3 this year? Growing skyfall and is a bit of yellow rust around so may do a cheapo one involving Tebuconazole

    Variety breakdown

    How many years do you think a variety holds in for? Grown skyfall and Graham for a few years but skyfall is suffering from rust. What’s interesting is home saved skyfall is fairing better fresh C1 seed a seed contract. Graham is all home saved and little sign of rust. Note I’m in the SW so...

    T2

    So, T2 has always been the big spend. Is this Revystar the complete dogs danglies? Because £45/ha gets me a lot of other chem.

    T1 Fungicide advice please

    Hi all. Have been sent Skyway (very expensive) by my agronomist to apply as a T1 alongside Toledo, which I already have in stock. Wheat variety is Costello which I believe is very tolerant against rust- is there any advantage to applying the Toledo AND Skyway or can some more experienced arable...
