For a change in most of the country there is little drought stress, though also far from bright weather. The longer the canopy/plant can assimilate energy(carbs) the higher the yield. The high yielders we see in the press are mostly coastal/maritime or at a degree of altitude etc. 6- 7 weeks and as long as you can get after that post anthesis i reckon.

How long does wheat need to hang on now before succumbing to disease? Its gonna die anyway soon enough

Long as possible. First wheat is my big, big payer. At these prices as well, a big crop may set me up for a couple of years and allow next year to even be, god forbid, all spring barley. Which it may well end up at today's n prices.

Well another grey old day. Not a lot of sunshine here in South Lincs. Very grey from dawn. Those solar panels attached to wheat plants not doing a lot of good at moment - whether they were coated in Revystar or not. Complete contrast to last year when all farmers were pessimistic, yet I was optimistic for yields, for the albeit very small area of winter wheat in 2020. At moment I am preparing my second day of combining speech explaining why yields and specific weight are low when crops looked so well. Hey ho.

It's been grey for ages now. The year to have one of those outdoor tub driers with dust extraction to polish up samples I think.

Can't be more than a month of grain fill left.

But I still think a T3 will have been a good option this year.

It can't be as bad as 2012! We are seeing the sun on and off, but it will be pegging back yields from crops that, on the whole, look full of potential. Which is always worse psychologically, than having low expectations and finding that the trailers are busier than you thought they would be!

Hi, no not a 2012 - that was genuinely awful with combination of poor levels of radiation and waterlogging of the plant roots. And it may not be so bad now - as you say there is sun. But goodness wouldn't it have been better with above average sunshine hours for the end of May and all of June! Hey ho, we shall see come harvest - which looks a way off yet! At least your Brash will not be dieing off with drought\?

T3 didn’t help this Kerrin much.

Wish I’d not skimped on my T3 now; fusarium everywhere I look; especially the spring wheat. Ironically my spring wheat application was timed a lot better than the winter wheat but I think the weather just overcame my litre of teb 😔

1L of teb isn’t really skimping. PTZ would likely have added something, but I bet you would still have had loads of fusarium everywhere. I can’t remember the exact figures but even full rate perfectly time is only about a 50% reduction.

My sensible head knows you’re right but it’s just come from nowhere; never seen it so bad. Is it just mine or are others finding more than normal this year? We farm save seed and I’m trying to move to DD so it’s got me quite concerned…

Are you sure your spring wheat is fusarium? The picture above definitely is as the part of the ear below the fusarium is completely green. I only ask as I have a lot of spring wheat this year and the ears have suddenly started to lose green this week whilst the stem and leaves are still green. I was worried it was fusarium but I think it’s just senescence. The whole ear is losing colour from the top but most grain sites still have a good green kernel in them. The odd grain site or part ear that has got fusarium are completely bleached out and have no kernel or a very shrivelled white one.

I’ve got a fair bit. More in 2nd wheats than firsts. Not noticed any difference between treated an untreated seed. A bit more in untreated plots compared to 0.75L teb.
