Win­ter OSR

Irish Examiner - Farming - - GENERAL FARMING -

Many win­ter oil seed rape crops were not planted un­til Septem­ber, and will there­fore need to be care­fully man­aged up to the end of the year. Early sown crops es­tab­lished rea­son­ably well.

Flea bee­tle dam­age is re­ported at low lev­els but slugs are more prob­lem­atic with some loss of plants. Pre-emer­gence weed con­trol is work­ing well.
