Ours we be there end of next week I expect, especially when in warms up.
No T0 and no disease about here.

What are people thinking? SDHI?
Anything will be partnered with Folpet.

At least 2 weeks away here. Got some Adexar to use up which will cover most of it at the rate I'm likely to use given current weather. If it turns wetter (which won't be hard!) I would up the rate and need a bit more of something else, but it will include an SDHI. No multi-site though.

Keep thinking about this. If the forecast stays dry then surely some teb and maybe a strob is all that’s needed? .8 ascra and some teb? We have potential here and plenty of moisture in the soil.

Some W Barley at GS32 which will be getting PGR soon and most Wheat at 31 which will be getting T1 one shortly as it didn't get a T0. Yellow Rust just appearing on the Wheat now.

The rain we had at the weekend was just perfect and washed the Urea in nicely. But wish these fudging Frosts would end.

Crops only at GS30, nothing applied yet, probably 3 weeks off T1 so will get T0 of some teb, PGR and nutrition at weekend, will then decide T1 just before event based on weather between now and then and forecast.

W barley only just 30/31 so T1 next week

What variety is the yellow rust in? We have some showing in Zyatt, I have a memory of it being visible this time last year but them disappeared without treatment once stem extension kicked off, I cant recall which variety that was though or if I am just going mad :unsure:
 

Rejuvenating swards: Which option is best?

Written by Brian McDonnell

Maintaining grass quality during mid-season grazing is important. Farmers can maintain quality by entering ideal grazing covers of 1,300 – 1,500kg DM/ha, and grazing down to a residual of 4cm every rotation.

If you are now in a situation where cows are not cleaning out paddocks as well as they should be, leading to the development of steamy grass within the sward, here are some options.

Common options for rejuvenating swards include:

  1. Take a silage cut, probably into bales, remove the material and start again with the aftermath...
