Applied for mid tier last summer and still not heard anything.

Rang them last week and operator could see my application in the system but had no clue why I’d not heard so promised someone would call back with more details.

Amazingly they did call but were no help at all.

Is there a deadline they have to adhere to?

Won't ELMS make it superfluous ?

key part of my application was a ruck of fencing on arable land so I can move stock across those areas to aid rotations/soil health.

Thought I’d better get that in as nit sure elms would support that.

We got our offer through back in September (30th), had until the 28th of October to accept. We have been assured we will be able to roll it into an Elms scheme once they become available without any penalty’s, time will tell though!

Ours took 12 months and then they wanted to back date it to when we first applied meaning we'd fail on the first claim because nothing was in place on the ground. Told them to stuff it but they eventually backtracked and forward dated it giving us a year to sort it.

I got told on Friday that one third of the workforce either have the virus or are shielding and another third of the workforce are now pregnant!!

I was told there is still a large backlog of applications for last year to process and as for this year, unless you are in a very high priority area ( ie a water catchment area ) then there is not much point applying as they wont have the staff to even look at let alone process your application!

Learning from the successes of growers’ black-grass control programmes gives a raft of integrated cultural and herbicide strategies that can also be used to hit back at increasing ryegrass populations, advises Syngenta Technical Manager, Georgina Wood.

“Key to that success is stacking up as many of those options as is practically possible in a farm situation.”

  • Delay drilling
  • Adapt cultivations
  • Increase spring cropping
  • Grow competitive crops
  • Prioritise pre-emergence applications
  • Stack pre-em herbicides
  • Optimise treatment timing and...
