A suggestion of @betweenthelines, probably long overdue for most of us, this thread seems like one with a real future to it... :rolleyes:

I'll start, something relatively minor, but irritating nonetheless: putting in some thunderbolts to hold a mini-sleeper to a wall so I can attach some rails to it, I used the same size masonry bit as the bolts. :banghead:

While instructing oldest boy how and what to do and having just said to always use a bit smaller than the intended bolts... :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

Fortunately after a lot of looking, I'd the next size up in store, so all was well in the end and I hardly swore at all, or looked a prat, much. :angelic:

I thought it had the drill bit size to use stamped on the head of the bolts with those things?

I remember pointing it out to my father after he drilled a bunch of holes too big for the bolts he had :D
 

Early moves to target wild oats

Growers and agronomists now face the dilemma of an early application to remove competition from emerged wild oats, or holding off to allow more weeds to germinate.

Syngenta grassweeds technical manager, Georgina Wood, urges Axial Pro treatment as soon as conditions allow, once weeds are actively growing.

“That offers the chance to control wild oats more cost effectively at lower rates, whilst there is still the flexibility to tailor application rates up to 0.82 l/ha for larger or over wintered weeds and difficult situations.

“The variability of crops and situations this season means decisions for appropriate Axial Pro rates and application techniques will need to be made on a field-by-field basis,” she advised.
