This is a crop w barley at Gainsborough, pictures taken on 29th January 2013 after snow had melted, the farmer called me and said he was very impressed and would like to use the Delta and 1-4-ALL on his wheat this year.

He has rarely seen a crop look so well on this land which is sandy to pure sand, this barley crop had received 4L/Ha of Delta and 2L/Ha of 1-4-ALL applied in the autumn and nothing else, it was applied in the autumn because the crop looked so poor going into winter.

Tillering is great, colour is very good, roots are exceptional and general appearance when you consider it was under snow three days ago is brilliant.

I have recommended he go on as soon as he can with as little as 2L/ha of Delta and 2L/ha of 1-4-All. This will keep the green affect, and keep stimulating roots.

If you can travel then the crops at these better temperatures will respond. The early influence of Delta on roots should not be underestimated.
