Just got this cut and paste vegan propaganda on an email. Have written them an email explaining regenerative farming, and cancelled my subscription. As Goebbles said repeat the same lie enough times and people treat it as fact.

 
Contemplated it, was put off by accountant types at work who won't even buy a condom or a pair of socks without consulting Which? magazine first.

Example conversation: 'oh no, you can't buy that, Which? magazine rated this as being the best, you should buy this, can't you see that, you absolute fool?'


No no, I see it alright, it's just that I honestly don't care and given even less of a pish for the opinions of Which? magazine and I have no time to worry about living your failure-free Toyota-everything lifestyle and revel in being a non-conformist knowing I have bought the 'wrong' fudging toaster.

I had to chuckle the other day when one of the aforementioned suits announced he had bought a Mitsubishi PHEV thing was waxing lyrical about it and how he could drive so many miles to work on electric. You should have seen his face when I mentioned that those are such great great cars it perplexed me no end to learn that Mitsubishi was abandoning the UK market totally and that they would be rarer than tits on a snake in no time.

I subscribed to which about 40 years ago but it seemed that the things that they tested were discontinued models by the time that the magazine was published.
 
Any magazine you read is paid for by advertising, if you want real world stuff go on a forum and ask people who have used it or read it, pet its printed on nice shiny paper too - the sort that cant be recycled

Grandad used to subscribe 50 years ago. Never rated it then

Internet has overtaken them anyway

Bit like the NFU thread; I can no longer resign in protest !!

Taken out trial subscriptions (for £1 I think) when we are looking at buying some item. Last item was a cordless strimmer, where the B&D model got rave reviews and best buy. We're now on our fourth or fifth, some replaced on warranty, which has now been reduced, others repaired in little over a year's use, when the Chinese gears have stripped.
Try Googling "best lawnmowers (or whatever )" and strangely the top buys are always stocked by Amazon.

Brother in law won't buy anything without consulting Which 1st, thats why my sister has to make do without everything from the toaster to the central heating boiler whilst he does his research. Tightwad of the grandest order, multi millionaire as he inherited a shed full of cash from his mum, but won't part with a penny unless its spent on the best buy. Attending his funeral is going to be the highlight of my year.

That's a shame. Which were quite useful for their reviews on lots of items & services. Another cancelled subscription to sort out.
 

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.
