    Brasica weeds

    Looks very similar to Hedge Mustard. Pre emergence clomazone would probably work if it is available, the OSR seed would need to be drilled and not broadcast and it can cause some crop bleaching which quickly grows out.

    Sclerotinia on rape

    For which insect is the insecticide being recommended? Pollen beetle are beneficial once the crop has started flowering. If you see a lot of seed weevil on the sprayer when you are spraying then an insecticide could be justified. Mealy aphids rarely go much further than the headlands.

    Sclerotinia on rape

    Keep on eye on this; Sclerotinia infection risk alerts (forecast) for oilseed rape | AHDB It is a really good tool for sclerotinia spray timing. I am delaying spraying until it warms up a bit, only planning on spraying once.

    Its quoted as being relative to manufactured N, I actually use the figures a lot and they work for me.

    Slurry analysis

    To be accurate you really need a figure for available N and even then the crop and time of year when applied will affect how efficient the N is utilised. The correct analysis code at Lancrop is SA7d.
