Liquid manganese label says avoid spraying in intense sunlight, very bright at times but plenty of cloud too, any thoughts ?
No spraying should be done in very bright sunlight.
The Aircon should never have to be turned on if it is too hot to sit in the cab, then it is too hot and bright to spray, I will start back spraying this evening around 5pm. Too hot and bright here now for spraying, but lovely.

Novojett is Manganese Nitrate.
Don't worry about a heavy dew, spray away, but do avoid between 11am & 5pm on days like this.
The spray droplets act like magnifying glass and the strong sun burns the leaf.

Do you always spray the headlands first? Had kinda got used to doing the opposite here. You have a lot more clearance though for final sprays.
Yes.
Use to try train myself into doing it from the middle out, but GPS and the self propelled but pay to that again.

If you have a field mapped is it possible to use an internal headland for on/off section control?

Anywhere there is springs is in trouble, I've got some myself but unfortunately it all has to be sprayed for weeds by now!

There is a marked difference in crops that had to be sprayed for wild oats and canary grass too.

To be fair it is really motoring the last few days.

I walked a good bit of mine here tonight and the difference versus last Sunday is huge despite it being checked with the weed spray.

If it could get a decent spell of weather on it now it would do it the world of good

It just isn't available to the merchants, or in the merchants I deal with, rang 2 local merchants neither had it available.
Fair enough, it’s available locally to us and allways has been.
Is picoxystrobin gone off the market too? It was creedo from du pont about 10 years back but have not seen it in years tho. It was a good net blotch strob.

Haven't seen it for a couple of years, we are losing a lot of options unfortunately.

Not really my choice of Strob, I would have gone with Moddem/Comet, but BASF are fecking around so I can't get it without buying one of their feck arse "packs", so generic Az is 2nd choice.
Fair enough, I wouldn't be a big fan of it anymore, it's efficacy on net blotch seems to be questionable. We succumbed to their marketing hoodwinkery and went for the feck arse option on the winter barley.

I am completely over the top in my hatred of their games, their Imtrex, Moddem Proline "party pack" is probably the best barley product. I am also very worried about the over use of Proline, so it isn't a big penance for me to forgo using it. Naming these packs differently into different merchants to try deliberately confuse farmers also annoys me. Not as bad as the messing going on with Inatreq. But that is just a bugbear of mine.

There's another thread on here discussing how growers need to keep up to speed with the evolving range of chemicals and active ingredients and to reduce their dependence on agronomists. It's as if chemical companies want the opposite.
