Tractor ploughing at field experiment

With frosty nights and mornings in many areas, winter has finally started and the gate can be shut on most field work until the New Year. Most crops are looking in good shape heading into the winter, but we would recommend some crop walking to keep an eye out for potential issues and patches of poor growth.

Something to look forward to beyond Christmas and Hogmanay are the winter roadshows SRUC runs in partnership with AHDB Cereals and Oilseeds for the FAS in January. Full details are given at the end of this Crop Protection Report. The ‘tour begins at Carfraemill in the south and heads northwards via Perth, Inverurie and Inverness. To avoid disappointment book your place at the venue nearest to you at We look forward to seeing you in the New Year.

Thank you for reading us this year and we wish you a merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
