Anthony Morbey is about three-quarters of the way through his 81ha (200 acres) of oilseed rape at Cole Ambrose, Ely, Cambs, and is not impressed with the results.
“It is not fantastic – we might average 2.5t/ha (1t/acre), which is low,” he said.
However, the 404ha (1000 acres) of Robigus and Solstice winter wheat looked very well. “I should think we’ll be into it in 10-14 days.”
