Update from UK and France

SW England; winter oilseed rape struggling with late frosts at mid flower; early drilled winter wheat at half flag leaf emergence (GS38), later drilled crops at leaf two.

NW France; winter oilseed rape just at end of flowering; winter wheat at flag leaf sheath opening (GS47) to first spikelet visible (GS51) and will be moving fast now that its warm. Thanks for the update from Jim Bateman who also has some land in Romania so we should get some info from there in due course.
