The article provides updates on agronomy issues in Great Britain. In the south western part of the country, some farms recorded over 4 inches of rain between May 19-21, 2006 and this helped to wind up the septoria pressure. Most oilseed rape is just beyond mid-flowering in the north. Crops are bouncing on in the recent warm weather, but disease levels are likely to increase rapidly and weeds are growing strongly in the east.
