33mm in the gauge this morning.
Electrics have gone off on everything except the house and even in the house there’s a few rooms dark, too much rain has collapsed a shed roof more (we told landlord 3 years ago it was falling in) than what it was and I can see it’s fallen onto the main cable feeding the sheds, currently got extension leads across the yard keeping freezers and fridges on 😡

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.
