The author focuses on the status of crops in Gloucestershire, England in 2008. He cites the decision of several growers not to drill oilseed rape as they felt that the second half of September was late to plant. Other threats for the crop include downy mildew and phoma. He also notes that blackgrass control in cereals should start with a pre-emergence treatment and adds that crop safety of the herbicide should be checked if spraying is delayed.
