  1. The little Oilseed rape that I have in the ground is growing well, mainly drilled around the middle of August after some welcome rains. Flea beetle pressure this season (I’m touching wood as I write this) has been relatively low in the Hertfordshire area, with early attacks being nipped in the bud at cotyledon stage with a mix of lambda-cyhalothrin, sulphur and a latex based sticker. On all bar one field, this has been the only treatment needed for the pest.
