Crop established into standing wheat stubble and irrigated up. Initially good establishment and crop growth. Season then turned cool and crop shortened up. Crop experienced very high heliothis pressure from establishment until late January. ï¾ Up to 50 eggs/meter in some cases, which took a toll on fruit retention. Crop suffered a late irrigation and heat stress in mid January with consequence of it dropping of top crop due to lack of vegetative growth. Yield was set back as a consequence.
