Crop development

Updated 06 Apr 2020
This interactive tool helps show the condition and growth stages of different crops. The chart is split into regions and uses colours to show different conditions. You can also use the bottom chart to see growth stages of cereals or oilseeds. The data for this interactive report is updated monthly.


This crop development report covers the crop season through to the end of March 2020. It provides information on drilling and establishment of winter cereals, oilseeds and of the start of spring cereal drilling.

Drilling was severely affected by wet weather conditions in autumn, based on ADAS calculations, 80% of the final wheat area was drilled before the end of November, with most of the remainder (17%) drilled in February and March as soil conditions improved.

It is estimated that 76% of the intended wheat area is in fair to excellent condition, with 18% in poor to very poor conditions. The remainder is yet to emerge, which is mainly crops sown in February/March.

It is estimated that about 74% of the winter oilseed rape area is in fair to excellent condition, with about 8% considered to be in very poor condition and at risk of failure.

GB Crop Condition

Over winter oilseed rape crops were affected by waterlogging, flea beetle and pigeon grazing, with about 15% of the current area of questionable viability, and an estimated 38Kha of already lost and replaced with other crops (EBS data).

Please note, figures may not add to 100% due to rounding.
