IMPROVING OILSEED RAPE ESTABLISHMENT

Fast & reliable establishment of oilseed rape in the late summer has always been the priority goal for growers. Pressure to achieve this has never been greater with pest & other factors conspiring against farmers producing a decent crop stand going into the winter.

One area often neglected in the race to get a crop established is the use of a starter fertiliser. Recent work by NIAB TAG has shown how beneficial this can be under current conditions, they say:

Application of starter fertiliser is essential to help establishment of the crop. DAP is particularly effective, particularly if placed with the drill rather than broadcast, at a 30 kg/ha equivalent N dose. We have seen good responses to this even in relatively high P index soils.

The use of Sipcam’s microgranule starter fertiliser Umostart has significant advantages over traditional approaches in terms of higher work rates, reduced compaction and cost. Higher concentration and placement with the seed facilitates better faster nutrient uptake in the key establishment period.

Used in oilseed rape at 10-15kg/ha for a number of seasons Umostart gives better rooting and establishment to maximise crop potential. More details can be seen on the Umostart page here.

For more information please get in touch either with us at Sipcam UK (see contact page) or our distributor Procam.

NEW MACHINERY CONTACT FOR UMOSTART APPLICATION

APV logoContact has recently been made with the machinery manufacturer APV from Dallein, Austria, who specialise in production of applicators for fertilizers and slug pellets. Through their European network of dealers (KRM in the UK) the company has experience of Umostart being successfully used through their machines. For further details please go to links in the Umostart page under application techniques & machines.

SPARVIERO NOW WITH BYDV RECOMMENDATION

Recent press items have highlighted that many cereal crops did not get sprayed for BYDV last autumn due to wet conditions, especially in the west. Sipcam’s 100gms/litre encapsulated lambda-cyhalothrin Sparviero now has a recommendation for use in a BYDV risk situation, & application is worthwhile up to G.S.32. Full details will be added to labels as soon as possible, but in the meantime please contact us if more detailed information is required.
