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.

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.

In July, we opened the applications window for farmers to join our Sustainable Farming Incentive pilot.

The Sustainable Farming Incentive is 1 of the 3 new environmental land management schemes. It sits alongside the future Local Nature Recovery and Landscape Recovery schemes.

We are piloting the scheme to...
