    Good potential with spring wheat here, we have had a nice bit more rain than other parts of the country, and it's after beet after ley so should be a good slot for it. Only 10 acres and all for wholecrop but so far so good. Talisker with a bit of chilham on headlands. IMG_20200530_175818910_HDR.jpg

    We have deer in the Spring Wheat. I had an idea they were around and the thermal imaging camera proved it.

    • Spring wheat raceing ahead, it got a litre of Opera, CTL and Ce Ce Ce over two weeks ago. Just wondering would I be as well to leave it head out before going back in with another fungicide again? 27D40152-43EC-49B1-86A6-D6C642D1F0E9.jpeg 0F98D1FC-AA9D-4EB7-B085-E441CCE0418F.jpeg

    Prob 2 weeks to head out and flowering. Maybe a little more as weather gone rough. Would you out maybe some generic opus or something to keep it going from a rust point of view

Talisker has a lot of aborted grain sites at the bottom of the heads, is this stress related or is it a deficiency the difference is definitely varietal as they are side by side. First photo is chilham, 2nd and 3rd are Talisker.

    I was in Kildare on Monday looking at trials.

    For the first time in my life, I saw frost damage in spring wheat. It varied depending on the variety.
    Some varieties were untouched whereas others were hammered - depending on their growth stage at the time.

    This was the late frost that occurred in May (Sunday night here).
    It wasn’t terribly cold (-1deg C) but enough to do harm.

    I think your pic could be related. Talisker would be a bit earlier to develop than Chilham (both were ok in the trials I saw).

    Very interesting, I have never seen frost damage either, it is only the bottom of the ears are blank, is that consistent with frost? Talisker was more advanced all year.

    I would have thought that it would be the top of the ear that would be damaged by frost but perhaps It can be the base too.

    Was it not the massive drop of 20 degrees in temperatures rather than the frost that stressed it.

    It’s very short . I might have to put the combine in the road gear to cut it. The brother thinks it’s a great crop so we will go with his assessment. There was a variety years ago called Minaret and a contractor came to cut it and he could see the ground and could not believe how it yielded.

    Harenda? Looks similar here, I'm not quite sure what to make of it, straw will be scarce on it and it will need a very good grain size to yield

    Probably a bit over two foot but heads are short but if the Bushel was good it might be okay.

    This is my Harenda today. It's knee high in the majority of it and near ditches about 6 inches taller
