Extase probably at the weekend and everything else spread over the ten days after that i reckon.
will aim to not rush it on early as there is no rain forecast
 
planed = Ascra Xpro + CCC + Moddus + Gramitrel + Bortrac - 10 days away here

Its interesting that you are using boron on cereals. We are extremely deficient in it, in rape and beans we see can see to the inch where we miss spraying it. However I have been told cereals are unresponsive to it so I have never tried it perhaps we should? On cereals Zinc and copper get mentioned a lot but never Boron.

Crops are moving very fast here and still spotless so might spend a bit more on a single fancy spray at flag leaf and nothing at T1. To be honest in some fields I have probably missed it but If I change my mind it will get 0.5 azoxy and 0.5 tebuconazole.

Only doing it on basis of tissue results show low and to correct costs bugger all, havent left any untreated as the yield increase to cover cost of it is unmeasurable as so low
