Has anyone got red/brown tipped leaves. Agronomist thinks its the cold dry weather we've had, I hope anyway!
He said other clients have the same.
Sprayed 10 days ago with
1.25 l Chlormequat
0.5 l Tubosan
0.1 l Moddus
0.4 l Starane
21g Ally Max
Started spraying after 10 in the morning and finished before 4 in the afternoon because of the cold nights.
Has anyone else seen this?

Our winter barley has been hurt by Moddus this year. Oats have had 1l Clormequat, 0.1 Moddus and some Hurricane (cant remember rate) and looks pretty green. Not a very thick crop though, we seem to have suffered with poor establishment compared to the barleys.

That's one hell of a mix for Oats with the weather we've been having this April... :X3:

I bloody hope not! Didn't drill them till mid Nov. I hope its the moddus and cold weather that have knocked them. After talking to my spray man a small awkward patch that he missed with the original mix doesn't seem affected. He was putting manganese on today.

Did an agronomist give you that rec?
Brave man to do that in these conditions. Is it an approved mix? Might be an insurance job
