No, it won't replace fungicides. There is some yield response to some biostimulants in a very low input programme.What are people's views/experiences of using biostimulants as a replacement for fungicides? Particularly Scyon.
I questioned the inclusion of it from agronomist today and said it would replace ctl.
Every little helps.....them hit their sales & profit targets.I stupidly didn't ask. I've only 50 acres of winter barley so it's not going to break the bank. Will post it here when invoice comes in.
Out of interest, how much did it cost ??
Bloody hell. Even if it's a litre per hectare I'm in the wrong business. I'd be asking for it to be credited as a freebie, or giving the chap his marching orders. I'd hazard a guess the distributer and producer will each be making a big, big margin on it.Think someone told me it was £6 ha Assume it is Hutchinson’s exclusive If I had a CTL replacement for £6 ha I would have made sure everyone new about it There lack of publicity for the product tells you all you need to know There was an article about it in crop protection magazine last year I think
It’s situations like this where I value my NIAB TAG membership, the subscription has paid for its self many times over by giving me an independent view on such productsBloody hell.

Can't decide if I'd like this stuff regulating better, or just for us all to get a bit wiser before we dump it in the tank thinking it's only £20 or whatever.
Surely the manufacturer looks at posts about these kinds of products They could come and post their thoughts and any proven results Might even persuade a sinic to try someI don't mind anyone poking fun at me. Just don't want my agronomist getting a hard time!.That's my job!
As I said it's my choice what I put in tank, I can and have left stuff out in the past.
Just a bit suspicious about this stuff and interested in the collectives opinion on it.
You are wise to be suspicious. Tbh you're agronomist is probably under pressure to get it out of the warehouse.Just a bit suspicious about this stuff and interested in the collectives opinion on it.
