    Im down to last 100g so I cant wait for the politics to sought out. Few stories around that Monsanto sold the rights to another company as they could not make money out of it. Sempra's one of the best chems i have ever used with excellent results and profits for me.

    Today a bloke told me that Nu-farm is taking on "Sempera" as Monosanto are discontiuing distribution.

    Aparently Sempera is derived from a plant found in the Amazon.
    I suppose it isn't very cost efective for them to produce but Rural buying at "Labrador" are spose to get some in a couple of months so until then I'll be hand painting Nut-grass in my blue couch accounts..............what a pain in the a#s!!

    Kamba-M is good stuff so I've been using a bit of that latley.
    I havn't been able to purchase Sempera for a couple of months.

    Let me know If you track some down mate.................I'll do the same.

    Globe Australia just got a batch of 300 kg but sold out in days. Have put name down for their next batch but only comes in 500g now, nearly $700:eek: May be a month or two before available again.

    Good rain here for a day has picked things up a little.
