Crop development

Updated 10 Dec 2019
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.

Overview

The latest ADAS crop development reports give an indication on cereal and oilseed crop condition and emergence as at the end of November.

By the end of November it is estimated that just under 60% of the intended wheat area and just under 65% of the intended winter barley area had been drilled.

Applications of pre-emergence herbicides were disrupted, with weather windows for drilling often too narrow to allow the sprayer in as well. In addition where seed beds were poor and there were concerns over establishment some farmers held off investing in herbicides until they knew there was a viable crop present.

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

The table below shows the average crop condition of the drilled areas as well as the area not planted or yet emerged as a proportion of the intended total area.

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