Arable Crop Report March 2017

A large majority of crops have come into the spring in good condition and promising yield prospects have been seen at this stage in the season. A slow start has been made to the spring drilling campaign as a result of heavy rainfall late February/early march leaving soils too wet to access, since soils have become sufficiently dry drilling, cultivations and spray applications have started across the country. The monthly rainfall averaged 57mm which is close to normal with most rainfall falling in the first and third week of the month. Air temperatures were 2°C above average for this time of year with maximum temperatures averaging 12°C. Crops including winter wheat, winter barley and winter oilseed rape are ahead of recent years in terms of crop development and all crops have few weed, pest or disease pressures to report.
