Could kick myself (moddus cock up)

My recommendations were mis read by my operator a few years ago and he applied 1.0 l ha of generic 'Moddus' on a field. Made no difference what so ever.
I now only use genuine Moddus or Tempo and make sure I enlarge the . on the rec sheet.
I now seriously question whether non genuine sprays are actually the best value for money, and for important stuff eg T2 fungicide, I will stick with the main brands.

+1, accidentally applied triple the application rate to headland with T1/ PGR until I suddenly realised wrong nozzles. There was no difference on straw height or yield to the rest of the field. Nice growing year though

If there’s little growth to shorten, then I’d guess the worst effects of the trinexapac will have worn off by the time it eventually rains.
You might well get away with it 🤫

Your overlaps will be much shorter, but the rest of the field should be ok I think.
It won't kill it, if the ear was emerging it could have stopped that happening maybe.

Had a really busy day today, and made my first ever spray cock up,

Was putting some Magphos and amino on my wheat today, and after talking with agronomist a few weeks ago I said send out some teb for the gleam and a bit of moddus or equivalent for a couple of really forward fields.

Anyway decided to leave the PGR ou and just put 0.5 lts of teb a d the Magphosk and amino on,

Little did I know that the moddus was actually tribune in a 5 lt can with a label just like rubric.

So I sprayed one 12.5 ha field with 0.4 lts ha of tribune (MODDUS)

just whag it needed in this drought, why they put it in. 5lt can I do not know always been in 1 lt bottles before.

My fault and really pee'd off with myself
But like my son said, well at least no one died.

You have PM.

There is much left to be desired with generics packaging.
Couple of years ago there was a generic Starane and an insecticide in identical containers, with just different coloured caps.
What could possibly go wrong on a farm growing beans?:censored:

Five nature-recovery projects spanning nearly 100,000ha across the West Midlands, Cambridgeshire, the Peak District, Norfolk and Somerset have been announced by the government and Natural England today (Thursday, May 26).

This is the equivalent in size to all 219 current National Reserves.

The aim of the projects is to deliver nature recovery at a landscape scale, helping to tackle biodiversity loss, climate change and improve public health and well-being.

All five projects will make a significant contribution towards the national delivery of the international commitment to protect at least 30% of land and...
