To Growth reg or not to growth reg ?

Just wondered what people’s thoughts on cutting growth regs for T1. My current recommendation is 0.1 moddus and a litre of 3C. I have some 1/2 decent looking w wheat and w barley. We use all the straw ourselves. With the current cold weather and it not exactly romping away with spring growth I just wondered what other people’s thoughts were?

I am only putting on CCC, except on the late Sept drilled, where I will add 0.1 Moddus/Tempo. The later drilled stuff probably doesn't even warrant the CCC
I have waited until tomorrow when it is forecast to warm up.
I put Moddus and CCC on the WB last week, I kept the Moddus in as it was still cold.

Has it had Broadway or Pacifica, how much N has it had and how much more will it get. Is it fertile ground.(history of muck) What would be a realistic yield Prediction
No Pacifica or Broadway star. WB has had all its N (180kgN )
Wheats have had 140kg N so far
Medium loamy ground that has fYM regularly.

SU graminicides do a good job of PGR by themselves! When it does warm up, there will be lots of lush growth to compensate so I'd stick with what you've got planned. Of course without a photo, variety name or tiller count there's no way of telling how thick it is now.

If you apply chlormequat to barley now, you will need to apply Terpal/Cerone later as the later internodes will be much longer thanks to bounceback.

Sticking with 1l/ha Chlormequat and 0.1l/ha Moddus. I remember coming away from cereals two years ago after the monsoon. Acre after acre flat as a pancake.

Written by Justin Roberts from Agriland

Claas has just unveiled three completely new four-rotor rakes with working widths of 15m, 13.6m and 12.7m. These maximum spans widths can be adjusted by 3.40 to 4.90m depending on the model,

The new range has been designed to offer low transport heights, improved ground-contour following by the rotors, and ease of handling, according to Claas.

Adjustable working width​


One major development are the new telescopic arms which extend and retract by means of a three-stage patented system.

This comprises a ‘C’ profile and slide rails, enabling rapid...
