Win an iPad mini

Farmers Guide has teamed up with DuPont to offer our readers the chance to win an iPad mini

Take a picture and win an iPad mini worth over 400Farmers Guide has teamed up with leading cereal powdery mildew fungicide Talius, from DuPont, to offer all our readers the chance to win an iPad mini – the essential business tool to help farmers stay in touch when they are in the farm office, in the tractor cab or away from the farm altogether. With current weather conditions favouring the development of powdery mildew in crops this spring, growers are being advised to be on their guard, ensuring that up and coming disease control programmes contain appropriate preventative chemistry to keep mildew at bay where crops are at risk – in susceptible varieties yield losses can be high (up to 20 per cent) and early control can be very important.So, with powdery mildew now being found in cereals throughout the country, all we ask of you is to send us your best close-up picture of a crop where the disease is in evidence, similar to the one pictured here. We will then draw one lucky winner from all the entries to win the iPad mini!You can send your picture either by:Email:  [email protected]
Twitter:  @farmersguideOr, alternatively, the picture can be printed off and posted to:iPad mini competition
