NADIS Farm Risk Assessments

NADIS News Feed

NADIS has developed a series of bio-security farm risk assessments for the major endemic diseases of cattle and sheep. The risk assessments have been designed to enable farmers and vets to identify the bio-security risk priorities for a farm. A report is produced so the risk priorities are highlighted and can be tackled first, improving the bio-security for the farm. The risk assessments are practical and easily accessible and can be included with a veterinary health plan or farm assurance.

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.
