Yellow rust innoculum in some  #wheatcrops  in  #Suffolk  and  #Essex  . And the mild winter                         temperatures have allowed the disease to linger. There is                         a real                         threat of  #yellowrust  exploding as temperatures warm.                        http://willingtoncropservices.co.uk/news-articles/yellow-rust-threat-to-wheat-2014.html

The sun is shining in #EastAnglia , and #soils   are still at full capacity. How long will it be before #farmfields   are fit for traveling? Spring #soilsampling for ph, P, K, Mg will have to wait another week at least.

Wet weather and saturated #soils in many areas, lead to questions about the amounts of Soil Mineral Nitrogen in fields for spring 2014. Check out our sampling services in East Anglia.
