I know I'm tempting fate but when is it going to rain ? No doubt when it starts it won't stop but it would be nice to have some mositure soon ! No grass, crops struggling going to have to start feeding sheep before long !

Our local forecaster on the local station has said that its the driest May in the SW since records started at least.
It's the Easterly wind through the daytime that is burning everything out now again.

Cattle men are soon going to struggle I fear.

Once air craft start flying in reasonable numbers again.
 

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.
