Oilseed rape

We missed the timing for the sclerotinia spray due to logistical reasons but with dry weather followed by plenty of showers petals have failed to stick to leaves and stems so I am not unduly worried.

Will be applying a fungicide to keep pods clean of alternaria and botrytis plus an insecticide for pod weevil and the subsequent pod midge and that should just about be it until desiccation and harvest.
