Got some fungicide, growth reg and manganese to go on wheat and barley but keep getting -1 for a few hours early morning. I’m holding off at the moment, are people still spraying and do they have any bad scorching

Likewise. Looks like less cold nights end of next week though. Crops are going to jump once they get going again.

Can’t see the CCC will do much good with temps like this either.

It's good weather atm. Cold is holding crops clean. Wb is spotless land. Here in Ireland land is drying nicely. Usually we suffer from excess rain. no ccc out yet.

If it looks stressed from lack of manganese I’m giving it some but making sure it’s well dried on before the dew and frost comes in. My worry is if I don’t get the Mn on the frost will Knacker it mire than ever. I could be wrong of course.

I'm of the same view as you, I'll be spraying tomorrow regardless MN is showing up and that'll do more harm than frost. This is with nutrients I wouldn't be putting pgr or herbs in with frosty weather, also I'm more cautious with powder MN than liquid.
 

Could a ‘Meat Tax’ be on the cards in the UK?

Written by Richard Halleron from Agriland

The latest machination coming from the so-called ‘opinion formers’, who seem to have the ear of government advisors in London, is the introduction of a ‘Meat Tax’ at consumer level.

This approach, it is argued, would have the combined impact of reducing meat consumption levels (I can really see the health benefits coming through now), while also helping to reduce the overall carbon footprint of production agriculture.

What absolute drivel! In my opinion, none of this makes sense at any level. This is a scurrilous and unfounded attack on livestock farming in this part of the world.

Yet, it has to be taken seriously. I make this point because economists at Rothamsted Research have already crunched the numbers where the introduction of a ‘UK...
