Spring cropping

Find tools and resources and the best practice that is essential for good quality spring crop establishment. 

Crop definitions can be found on the HSE website. As far as pesticide use and regulations go, anything sown up to January 31 is a winter crop. After that it is spring, regardless of variety.

For the Basic Payment Scheme, spring and winter varieties count as different crops independent of their sowing date. See page 68 of the Basic Payment Scheme rules for 2019.

If the variety is not listed as either spring or winter, classify the crop as a spring variety.
