The author focuses on the status of crops in Kent, England in 2008. He states that slug damage remains lower than anticipated due to cooler day temperatures and cold nights. He expresses concern over later drilled crops on heavy soils as their growth is slow and downy mildew can be found on cotyledons. He also notes that cabbage stem flea beetle is being controlled with a pyrethroid spray tank mixed with a graminicide for grassweed control.
