    That’s a tricky weed to control in oats.

    Pixxaro is a very useful mixer in barley and wheat, it’s seriously effective.

    A dose of Cameo with the Galaxy would have given it a good rattle.

    Yes but I’ve found it can survive the Cameo quite well. Gives it a knock but it recovers.

    Has anyone tried Pixxaro on oats I wonder.....?(in a trial situation of course)

    Taken today. All Isabel. A few bits starting to head out but that seems to be limited to one field for whatever reason.

    I thought I seen it all until today we were doing wild oat duties and seen some of April's fertiliser still in the surface. I think it's most likely potash so at least it's there for next year.

    Just cut 2 loads so don't really know but it won't break any records. Moisture was 18 and kph was surprisingly 59. Very little straw so much so that the stubble is showing up through the row of straw.

    Cut a field of Husky and it not great. Went into the next field and the green straw choked the drum . The good news is there is a defibrillator over at the club house because I nearly needed it .

    Gone into the lower ground and things have improved. We had to stop because the moisture went up to 22% . I have looked at other fields and they need more time to ripen. Put 28 tonne on a lorry and the electric bushel was 56 . Sprayed off the first field we cut to kill the grass and we are going to sow a cover crop before winter wheat.

    It is for putting out fires particularly belt fires because they reignite if you put water on them . I also carry 20 L of water and a couple of small spray bottles for hard to reach hot spots.

    When you are driving a combine and you smell cooked biscuits it is not coming from the dinner bag.

    A house upwind of a field I was cutting in on Sunday had a small garden fire going. It's not easy relax on a combine with smoke in your nostrils.
