    How wide is sprayer?
    Uan is a form of nitrogen wh ich will scorch.
    Put it on in the rain or not at all

  2. UAN was planbed at 15L ha with 120 litres of water, never had scorch doing this.

    Not all crop is like pic some is mid tillering and pale, needs a hit.

    Crop will not be malt.

  8. Well we sprayed today, nice cool conditions, but, but! The sprayed had large droplet size foe anti drift as its pretty much compulsory now, f*ck it all, and i reckon it will burn. The fungicide was oily i reckon.

    Anyway went on with 110litres of water so see what happens.

    I hope some crop stands back up? It blody better!!

    Im havin a scotch, im tired of work.

    Pics of stuff that will have 1000 heads sqm.

    The later developed areas picking up nicely.

  9. Your trams won't stand back up , you might get some with the combine going the opposite way to the sprayer but they won't ripen the same as the rest of the crop, or at least they wouldn't in Cumbria.

    Looks a great crop. Good to see not all of Australia fudged with drought. I see your using fungicides! Our other antipodean friends won't be happy.

    If you believe the experts on here that don't put in tramlines it will all stand back up and yield same as rest of field, ripening the same too!

    Hope you've given it pgr!
     
  11. Most times here the trams will stand enough to ripen and fill, i will be on the deck as straw is sold.
    It probably didnt need fungacide but will see.
    No pgr....could have but crop not even enough in growth stages.
    Drought, ive heard of this term, i think it means dry weather??? We dont really get that here except when its meant to in peak summer.

    Cheers Ant...

  16. Day 54

    40% of crop out in head
    Growing like wildfire
    Has full profile of moisture
    The uan and fingicide appear to be doing the job.
    1000 heads sqm is target, have in some decent size areas thus far.
    Best crop ive ever grown
    Not in the bin yet!

    It takes us 90 days to ear emergence usually
    This yr it was nearer 60
    Is that amount of rainfall normal for december?
     
  19. Yes, been a bit drier spring than normal, did get alot of nice cool weather so thats been in its favour.

    Next crop i wilk try get in week or two earlier if i can travel, to try slow it up through tillering stage.
