Our oil seed rape (OSR) is in full bloom

Our oil seed rape (OSR) is in full bloom currently. It has been a hard year for establishing crops of OSR, the droughts in September led to the crops being very slow to get going, leaving them susceptible to damage from Cabbage Stem Flea Beetle (CSFB). The crops that made it through to the winter have been sat with waterlogged roots and have had to endure high pigeon pressure. Now that the weather is starting to warm up and the crops are trying to grow, they are being held back by the CSFB larvae.
