So did some scouting today. Found something interesting. Contrary to what i would have thought im see alot more fleabeetle pressure in summerfallow vs zero till. I was expecting the opposite as i figured the zerotill would have provided good cover for them to overwinter and for them to eat in spring. The pictures are from the same field in the centre of the quarter. Had some unseeded acres last year due to springs hence why i have some summerfallow. As you can see the zerotilled canola is untouched and 25 yards over its getting raped. Any ideas as to why??
