Any other better prices than that?
Similar here, addicts pay $3.50 to $4.00/l delivered to yard in 1000 l shuttles. 450 active Adama product

Kills weeds, is an antibiotic and cures cancer. Should be part of everyone's diet. Reply With Quote

    And speaking of using glyphosate as a chelator to cure cancer:

    Isn't irony great?
    But I doubt Austranada or Chuck will read it, the subtitle for the site is science, not ideology Which goes against their ideology...

    Obviously the reason why the price keeps dropping is because demand is dropping even faster because the end of glyphosate is so near, so they are trying to unload the last few lots onto unsuspecting bargain hunting farmers. The last few cases will probably be free soon at this rate, if they can find anyone still willing to use it. How much has glyphosate use collapsed, Austranada? Reply With Quote

  • Austranada's Avatar Jun 25, 2019 | 21:56 251 Don't forget to do all your rate conversions to the new standard of litres per 1.1 acres. Aren't you glad alarmaphobic came to your rescue. I don't need a rest because I'm not on the treadmill. Go out and do something useful like taking Brix readings.

    Information. So far I've driven rogators, a patriot, Nitro's and 4940's. Never tried the aim command system. Had a ride in an Agrifac, don't like it.
    I thought back then that I'd try posting the sprayer question in the appropriate category but most just use the commodity category for everything. I've emailed the moderator about that to no avail amongst other things. Reply With Quote

    Actually, I prefer to continue to let this thread morph into what it is becoming, a place for posting the growing list of benefits of this miraculous chemical, sharing prices and bargains, tips and tricks. Sounds like nearly everyone has you know who on ignore anyways, so it really won't affect the usefulness of the thread. Reply With Quote

    farmaholic's Avatar Jun 26, 2019 | 10:24 257 We never go higher than 2.741 liters per hectare of 360 a.e. glyphosate for preharvest weed control. I know that sounds high but the results are good. Reply With Quote
    farmaholic's Avatar Jun 26, 2019 | 12:02 258 Sometimes we like to mix it up a bit and take our chances that no one finds out and apply 1.647 liters per hectare of 540 grams per liter a.e. glyphosate....equally good results.

    Shhhhhh!!!!! Don't tell anyone!


    Then sometimes we apply .666 liters per acre a.e. 540 glyphosate.....satanically evil results! Shhhhh! Reply With Quote

    Jun 26, 2019 | 18:16 260 28 ml of Pursuit (1/3 rate) with the roundup spraying soybeans works great. Keeps volunteer canola away and its cheap. Have to be mindful of recropping but we normally always seed wheat or barley on the soybean stubble. LI 700 seems to be a good product to add to the roundup to for drift and a sticker.

    Jun 27, 2019 | 02:42 261 Pointless debate but thought id poke my nose in.

    This week a current affairs programme had a "roundup" episode a farmer with cancer.....well turns out kinda a hobby farmer,spraying in a open cab "done it all me life" short pants etc etc yeppers blames monsanto gonna sue.

    But this popped up on twitter today not sure if you guys know what a "nuffield scholar" is but there held in high esteem top of the tree farmers just honest good guys.
    I quote "15 years ago I was diagnosed with stage 4 non Hodgson lymphoma, had 6 months chemo and made a full recovery. I’ve used glyphosate for 25 years as per directions of the label and industry best practice. My cancer had nothing to do with roundup and I confidently still use it." Grant Pontifex is his name. Those on twitter will find him.

    Apparently hes now wished he kept quite been swamped with interview and other media requests. Only know of the guy rather than know him he will decline and try to keep a low profile.

    Not getting in a debate with ozcanada but seems theres quite a groundswell of actual support for famers behind the scenes from many quarters which is great. Lots going on with farm groups, pollies some of the moderate environmentalists, farmers, apvma, nicnas csiro grdc everyones getting on the front foot. Reply With Quote

    You're a dinosaur 'chuck. Just gracefully **** off and leave the farming to us. You've done so much damage to farming families during your CWB time you should be grateful to be let to slink off into obsolescence. Keep up your bullshit and I'd love to put my fist in your face. That goes for you and your buddy Vader/Flamen. **** you both. Reply With Quote
