Hi,

My name is Jade and I am a final year University student undertaking a project on African Swine Fever.

I am looking for Pig Farmers based in the UK to kindly participate by giving feedback on an infographic I’ve designed to raise awareness of the disease, and complete a short evaluation questionnaire on its effectivity.

If this is something you can help me with, I would be happy to send across more information. Please provide an email address for me to contact you.

If not, perhaps you might know someone who is interested.

All help gratefully received.

Jade
 

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 actively growing.

“That offers the chance to control wild oats more cost effectively at lower rates, whilst there is still the flexibility to tailor application rates up to 0.82 l/ha for larger or over wintered weeds and difficult situations.

“The variability of crops and situations this season means decisions for appropriate Axial Pro rates and application techniques will need to be made on a field-by-field basis,” she advised.
