1. Farmers, growers, processors and industry representatives are being asked for their views from 31 August for 10 weeks on the role of the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB).

    The AHDB is a UK statutory levy board, funded by farmers, growers and others in the supply chain. As we leave the EU, there is an opportunity to ensure that the sectors that the AHDB covers are as competitive as possible. This review will look at the AHDB’s purpose and priorities, its strengths and where improvements need to be made.

    This is a joint 10-week exercise covering England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The request for views will close on 9 November.

    Last year I managed to scorch the flag leaf on my canyon oats by presumably spraying Mantra and Corbel on a sunny warm day.
    This year I’ve managed to scorch leaf 3 by spraying Mantra and Moddus on a dull day.
    How the hell do you not scorch oats as I want to put something else on the flag next week. 9532323B-5A8C-4995-BE20-3388E61E039C.jpeg

    Optimus is a lot softer on crop than modus and works as well

    Last year I didn’t use Moddus though as it was the T2 on flag leaf that scorched. That year it was Mantra plus Corbel. Mantra is quite soft though isn’t it? So was it Corbel last year and Moddus this year?

    Not spray .Oats are hardy don't need it !
     
  10. Know nothing about oats...why the need for such huge Corbel dose? There is a bit of fenpropimorph in mantra also obviously.

    Ok now the really thick question. Is the scorch in the photo not burnt out fungus with a bit of abiotic spotting?

    Any trace elements / NPK plus etc in that mix?

    0.5 canopy plus 0.1 Optimus plus hormone for blws and looking fine. Bit of tonic last night as the crop is a tad thin. No fungicide yet.

    Ball-bags, I've topped mine too. Mineral on a cool night. Ah well, not badly.

    Oh no. The panicles are coming out on mine so overall they look really green as it’s leaf 3 down below that got scorched. Hoping to not need to spray again as I think the next 7-10 days of heat will really hurt them if I stress them again.

    Autocorrect. Meant tipped. Mine look good though. No fungicide yet and hoping one slug when all out will be job done.

    What’s poison of choice

    Corbel + F500 here (jenton)
    Elatus quite good too
     
  16. Mildew can make it go very, very mankey, more likely in a season like last year tho.
