Flea Beetle Warning

Flea beetles are devastating some spring sown fodder crops and farmers must remain vigilant to ensure fodder beet, game cover, kale, stubble turnip and swede sowings become successfully established

Adult flea beetles move into brassica crops when temperatures rise and the weather becomes drier. Spring sowings are now under severe threat because of the recent warmer weather and in some cases crop damage has been so bad that farmers have had to reseed

Flea beetles feed on emerging brassica shoots, giving rise to the typical 'shot-holing' of leaves.

Please must remain vigilant and contact one of our agronomists at the first sign of beetle activity
