    John, Paul, George and Ringo.

    Friend of ours consulted his agronomist about their newly sown rape crop. He just said that John, Paul, George and Ringo were living in it.
    Strange how the greens can create a dilemma. Tonight my son saw probably half a dozen sprayers going about their business in this area, including himself. They were all frantically applying insecticides against flea Beatles. In this area we have not really suffered from the withdrawal of neonics until this year, probably because of the hot summer.
    The environmentalists have won their battle against neonics, possibly arguably. One thing for certain sure there will not be many bees and bumble Beas left alive around here tonight, together with many other insects.
    You solve one problem and create another. Oils seed rape has a lot to offer such as margarine, cooking oil, not to mention oilseed rape meal as an animal feed.
    It looks like not many growers will be risking oilseed rape again another year.
