The Ukrainian police still had them 7 years ago, I felt very sorry for the officer has he fined me about £30 for not stopping at a stop sign I'd not got to yet ,


Cant be too bad if used in russia,but id not want one.probably just badge snobbery though
For example, there are still a lot of people about that would't touch a Skoda car, even though (As part of The VW group ) they are streets ahead of what they were producing 25 odd years ago. Just the thoughts of having a car with that name on it parked on their driveway makes them wince. Slightly off topic, I remember The Renault tractor rep telling me he had some clever bugger come up to him at the Great Yorkshire Show telling him with words to the effect "I don't care how good they are I wouldn't by owt French, cos I hate the French". He then asked him what tractors he ran "Massey Ferguson I always buy British!" he replied proudly "Which models sir? " asked The Renault rep. When he told him which tractors he owned he politely pointed out that most of his Masseys were actually built in Beauvais.....France. The guy actually said " I don't bloody believe you!" and walked off!

If that's the new Niva it looks just the same as the old 70's one,is this the Land Rover influence in it. The designers apparently described it as a Renault 5 put on Land Rover chassis.

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.
