Local crop comments

Crop development and health status changes rapidly, driven by our changeable weather and the pests, weeds and diseases that get in to crops. Here we post regular updates on crop health matters, highlighting any emerging issues in each region of Scotland. Often we get advance warning from more forward areas of issues that are spreading and these can help with your crop protection plans.
