April 2008

The author states that they managed to get all the spring barley drilled and mostly rolled in between the heavy showers in Great Britain. Some April heavy rolling will be required on some fields to push the flints back down so they do not get eaten by the new combine. Atlantis or iodosulfuron-methyl-sodium + mesosulfuron-methyl has been applied to bad blackgrass areas and thoughts will soon turn to spring barley herbicide choice. This may depend on weather in April 2008.
