Spring 2019 Crop Development Report

Published on

Winter 2018/19, as a rule, provided good conditions for crop growth. Mild temperatures and below average rainfall allowed crops to establish well, with good over winter survival. 

Spring 2019 Crop Development Report

Soil conditions have been such that winter pesticide and early spring fertiliser applications were made with few delays. Cultivations and drilling of spring crops are progressing well. 

Cereal crops in particular are in good condition, with low levels of weeds, pests or disease present at the end of March.  Oilseed rape crops are more variable with some very good crops, with good plant numbers, and others that have been severely affected by Cabbage Stem Flea Beetle (CSFB).  About 5-8% of the drilled area of winter oilseed rape has been lost already, and there remains a small area that is of questionable viability.  Disease and weed pressure in winter oilseed rape remains low.

Regional crop condition scores and growth stage data are available on the AHDB Crop Development report dashboard.

This crop development report has been prepared by ADAS using data provided by regional reporters from ADAS, NIAB TAGSRUC and some independent agronomists.
