Pollinators in oilseed rape

What data are available?

The database contains historical pest and disease observations along with agronomic data and information about pesticide inputs, starting in June 1970 for wheat and March 1982 for oilseed rape.

Wheat diseases have traditionally been assessed each summer at approximately GS73 (early milk).  Oilseed rape diseases have been assessed in winter, spring (stem extension) and summer (pod set).

Pest monitoring has usually occurred in spring and summer.  More recently, observations of natural enemies and beneficial insects have been included in the assessment schedule.

The database contains a wealth of agronomic information such as variety, rotational history, sowing date and tillage practice.  Comprehensive details about pesticide inputs are also available and include the product, the active ingredient, date of application and dose.
