  • Catch 22

    What a difference a fortnight makes. Turning the clock back to less than 2 weeks ago in fact; the soil was hard, dry with anything that had been cultivated over the summer period and not rolled to conserve the moisture.

  • Do combines spread herbicide-resistant grassweeds?

    There's plenty of talk about herbicide resistance in blackgrass and what to do about it, but having just finished an article on the subject (Crops, 15 Sept), I was wondering what people thought about how resistant weeds spread across farms? The agronomist I was with suggested the combine was probably...
