Apparently, wild oat is a big issue in Finnish agriculture. It is present in a lot of fields, especially if those are badly treat, and is in competition with the crop.
The result is a weak crop and a lower yield.
That's why we went to Leppa on wednesday 28 of July to go to the ''wild oat-hunting''.
With Marco,Vesa,Topias,Marja,Annika and Johanna, we spent the day in the rape fields to see if they were infest by this plant.
fortunately for the crop and for us we didn't see a weed.
