    Harvest/Yields 2020

    Only one field of rape this year as was supposed to be in SA watching my boy play rugby. That obviously didn’t happen, combined Friday 1.75t/ac. Will be best paying crop this year. Virtually no beetles on trailers this year compared with last year so will be persevering with WOSR this year.

The rain in June has interfered with my mascani winter oatshaving had no fungicide so I have put 0.5lts of Firefly on the spring crop at ear emergence to try...
