nearly may and yet to use a fungicide, crops spotless clean

cold, dry - could this be the first year we don’t use this group of chemicals at all ?


rain could change things yet but it will need to be significant now to rebalance smd’s

anyone else not applied a fungicide to wheat or barley yet ?


thinking we might as well apply for organic conversion at this rate !

No fungicide on wheat yet and a far bit has only had half rate ally and mcpa. One field hasn't had any pesticides at all yet as there's no weeds or disease but I fear there will be a flush if we do get rain.
I haven't even ordered any T1 Chems yet, my wheat isn't there yet so I'll decide what to do and order the day before I do it. At the moment it could well be nothing!!!!

Respect man.

Am really struggling with it!

I've got a recommendation for last week that I've held back on because I don't want too long a gap till flag leaf. Like you I wonder what's the point but crops are looking great atm so I don't want to lose potential.

I did do a T0 quite a while ago in a tank mix because it's cheap though so can't quality for your big prize.

There has been coverage today in the I and the Guardian, reporting on speculation around the upcoming government response to the recent Gene Editing consultation, which closed on 17th March.

A full government response, which will include a thorough analysis and summary of the responses to the consultation and which will set out our next steps, will be published in due course.

Gene editing has the ability to harness the genetic resources that mother nature has provided, such as breeding...
