The crop was planted on the 27th Oct into moisture, very cold wet start
made for a slow start, coupled with heavy mirid and rutherglen pressure
retention was non existant until approx 12 nodes. High temperature from January onwards
coupled with high insect pressure meant for a delayed flowering period.
Crop was pushed hard to finish on time, I was relatively happy with the result considering the season that we had.
