This article offers a look at crop developments in the British agricultural sector. According to Neil Donkin of Countrywide Farmers, wheat has its usual early spring levels of Septoria tritici and mildew, but does not have the amount of brown rust seen in 2007. He suggests that T10 fungicides should be planned for later in March 2008. Will Foss of United Agri Products said that cold weather has slowed crop development and lowered soil temperatures.
