Bugs & Beasts

Phacelia gives some protection against pigeon attack, but flea beetle can sometimes be a problem - at the first sign, see your advisor.

Weeds

Use a stale seedbed - very limited chemical weed control available, and will likely kill the phacelia if post-emergence.

Plant Disease

Not usually a problem.
