I’d be very surprised if it’s in Extase, Is it on every plant or just odd ones? If it’s the latter I’d say they’re rogue varieties.
Definitely in Extase. Surprised the hell out of us too!
But don’t we often find that these “resistance to virtually anything” varieties soon break down?

I just hope it can hang on to its Septoria rating, which is always my main variety choice reasoning, especially now Chlorothalonil is gone.

Yellow rust is always the Achilles of all these best thing since sliced bread varieties. I put it down to being grown over a much larger area when they become popular.

2/3 out here just thinking of splitting the growth reg and trace elements tomorrow and wait a week. be fully out then
Did that here yesterday and today. Split PGR and manganese and left fungicide out. That will go on with the balance in about a week or just before it rains (I fear the former).

Done a mate t0 on some rusty varieties. Will probably be ready for t1 in a week. As there is little to no septoria is it best to hold off until leaf 3 is fully out on everything and see what is happening with the rain?

Had a look with agronomist yesterday. Leaf 3 on its way out, would usually be fully out now.
No disease, even on Firefly, bone dry with no rain on the horizon. Decided to hold fire, not even putting any product in the store. Could well only have a flag leaf spray this year.

No fung in T0 here, L3 is around 30% emerged
I’ll walk again on Monday and make a decision for T1 then, it won’t be a big spend !!

I’ll put the rest of the CCC on and leave out Moddus, can always come back with Terpal if rain comes in May and the wheats need a bit more pgr

T1 is a good two weeks away. Maybe a bit more with frosts and cold. Current plan is 0.3 of canopy and to use up the epoxi &mantra in the shed. Maybe a bit of amistar again for stock reduction.

Product and dose is easy when we have normal weather, whatever normal is. This year it is difficult to know what to do. May go 0.75 Aviator once I've used up the odds and sods in the shed. I might delay into early May if no rain in the forecast. Rusty varieties have had teb as a 'T0'.

5mm of rain in April. Wheat looks ok with T1 a fortnight off at least. I think we will also be using aviator. YR on certain varieties the only concern, without rain septoria won’t be a problem here. We have had nightly frosts and pretty cold days so my Teb @ t0 was probably a waste of money.
 

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...
