    How does one tell old damage from new?
    I notice a few leaves with holes that have a yellow rim. I presume that is old damage?
    How long does it take to yellow?

    A few leaves have been eaten from the outside in, that presumably is pigeons as big chunks have gone.
    Ive put some posts by damaged leaves and taken a few pics so I can compare.

    Over all I'm quite pleased.

    Would fert high in Boron be recomended for Stubble Turnips?

    Was just talking to our local rep and he said no need.
    Yes for normal turnips, but not stubble turnips.

    Boron should be beneficial for stubble turnips, but not necessary

    Boron essential for every crop. Can you get away without it for stubble turnips definitely, should you...

    second time ever growing it. And not on the same field!
    So not to my knowledge!!

    Anyone have a rough idea on how much the boron spray is?
    Will likely need to spray for flea beetle anyway, so stick it in the tank then.
