Sometimes an auld chat can save ya a few euro, lots of times it can cost.
Glad to help!!! Generally it works the other way around, time wasted yattering leads to getting caught later on in the day.
I'm in trouble so. This is in wheat but the rainfall that fell here yesterday afternoon for nearly an hour fcuked land altogether. I was in this on Friday just gone putting out the last of the N and no bother. I couldn't walk it yesterday evening. Wb will be just right for spraying near the weekend. Land not even close.I think Thursday/Friday is going to be a complete washout.
I think it is going to be a bad Ramularia year, all the stress caused by too much pesticides on during less than ideal conditions.Going with Boogie Xpro for my final on the WB. Unsure about whether to add Folpet to it......everywhere I read people are saying it’s a poor product so why bother??
I would be thinking of spray/weather damage or Net blotch.Am I right or totally off the mark ?
I don’t rate medax max as a barley PGR at all.The amount of N in FYM must be a lot higher than I thought, 90 units of chemical N per acre in total and one PGR (medax max) won’t be long falling down when there’s a big of weight on the heads 😒
I was very skeptical as from my own research through this forum nearly everyone doesn’t like medax max on barley, however it was the agronomists decision and at the time that barley actually looked so poor he recommended not to give it a PGR that it would be short enough. Again though I believe it got its roots into the FYM and that’s what drove it. The whole time that it was fit to get terpal we were getting hard frosts and when they left nearly all heads were fully out so didn’t want to try that, maybe 70 units of N would have been enough for this cropI don’t rate medax max as a barley PGR at all.
The straw will be at it's weakest at the moment and will stiffen up a good bit, but as you say the head will also be getting heavy. Hopefully we are getting all the shit weather now and it be out of it's system and we will get a good June, July and August.
How close to ley is that crop and how much FYm did you give it? What rate medax max and when?The amount of N in FYM must be a lot higher than I thought, 90 units of chemical N per acre in total and one PGR (medax max) won’t be long falling down when there’s a big of weight on the heads 😒
