Doing some over the fence farming, neighbours wheat, drilled late ish. Is this spray damage caused by the vortex behind the sprayer? No idea what it has been treated with but rumour has it that it gets top notch.

All 3 tramlines in this field the same, 48m boom.

Not the only field like it, next door too. He wouldn't have sprayed all the headlands first and gone back to do the field work. Anyway in that the field above the bottom picture was the headland - there are only 3 tramlines in the field.

Is there a leak that sprays out at higher pressures? ie he does the end headland a bit slower and sets off from the corner at low speed, but then speeds up and the auto rate is then raising the pressure to leak point?

Not sure vortex effect could raise the dose rate that much to kill it.

Dunno, it has mystified me for a couple of months when I go and look at my sheep next door.

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.
