Hi everybody,

Today I'm going to speak about the brassicas. In this period of the year they are quite well developed, the only thing they need is to mature a bit more before harvest.
Unfortunately, this year on the farm we can observe some diseases and some patches where the brassicas haven't grown very well

This pest responsible is called the swede midge, which can be active in the South West. It induce the stop of the production of the fruit.
We suspected that all the problems have been caused by a  mistake on two rows which was plant two years consecutive brassicas in the same place.

So that a good example of what you have not to do!!
