Komando oilseed rape yielded a pleasing 4.5t/ha (1.85t/acre) at Tim Sykes’ Denmeade Farm, Waterlooville, Hants.

The 45ha (111 acres) recorded an oil content of 45.7%. Mr Sykes was still waiting on results for the 40ha (100 acres) of Expert.

His Alchemy, Claire and Humber winter wheat was still 7-10 days away, he said.  “It’s looking very good.”
