    Spreading 375kg/ha of 12-5-25+S on the last of the Oats. I probably would have preferred to wait till April, but better now than in 3 weeks. 20200322_175804.jpg 20200322_180007.jpg 20200322_180029.jpg

    It is great strong ground and Oats seems to do very well in it

    I am going to patch in spring oats where the winter oats died out. It tilled up nicely.

    Is it Husky?

    Looks like that Septoria avenae. Usually occurs when a crop is stressed (I’ve seen it in drought conditions before).

    Isabelle. I haven't sprayed it with anything yet. Would I want to spray it with something for that septoria avenue?

    I’ve never seen it in oats this early. There’s a couple of blotches that come into oats. Septoria avenae is one of them, it usually occurs much later and has a different appearance to this. I’m wondering is the blotch in your crop an earlier stage of the disease.
    All crops have had a stressful life so far so I’m not surprised to see things like this.

    I wouldn’t panic about it yet, just see how it goes. It might grow out of it with kind weather. If need be, Elatus Era will stop it dead in it’s tracks but costs money.

    In the past, I’ve only seen proper bad Septoria in Husky (much later in the season). Husky is a parent in Isabel so perhaps it can occur a bit in that too.

    I sprayed my winter barley the other day. I added Bravo as in my view, the stress that crops have been under is likely to encourage Ramularia.

    Went out with 50 units of Sul can on the Husky which brings it up to 95 units . The sprayer was out with 1L CCC Half rate Reaper and manganese .

    I'm going to bring my own oats up to 100 units tomorrow and probably call it good on that front. It's had 1.4 Ceraide, .5 Opera and .2 Talius along with 3kg's of Epsotop.

    The Husky Oats is like the girl in Longfellows poem . Most of the patches have been resown .

    There was a little girl,
    Who had a little curl,
    Right in the middle of her forehead.
    When she was good,
    She was very good indeed,
    But when she was bad she was horrid.

    Had a good look through the oats today. It'll be getting 2l cecece in a couple of days. Probably give it a bit of trace elements as well. Overall I'm very pleased with it apart from the very last field I sowed which is at best only 50% there. It was mucked in literally and while it did initially come up the very wet weather finished off any that was struggling. I didn't take a picture. It's bad enough I know it's there without reminding myself with a picture. Luckily it's a 5.5 acre field so not to bad I suppose. 20200420_135134.jpg 20200420_135244.jpg 20200420_140024.jpg

    Fair play for sharing Bog Man, always good to be reminded that mother nature can put the best laid plans to ruin.

    Did it suffer from ponding or is it poorer ground, lack of drainage etc?

    One Field the end of the field got wiped but there were a few circles in the highest part of the field . It was not slugs but the cold nature when wet of some parts of the field . I find with mintill and oats I just till out the bad patches and stitch in new and move on . There is not much difference in yield between winter and spring oats . We have fairly large fields so can have subtle differences in soil between different parts . The hardest part is remembering where I put the fertiliser so maybe I might have over cooked some of the re sown spring oats . What I had to resow was 10% in both the oats and winter wheat with less small areas in the winter wheat that were not worth sowing .

    A few more bad patches than I would like, but not too bad considering the year.

    The winter oats is looking great, the Galaxy herbicide missed the fumitory and is very slow killing some of the poppies, the poppies wouldn't be an issue, but the fumitory will be a pain in a wet harvest.
