Winter barley harvest is finished in Co. Down, Northern Ireland, and generally yields have been very pleasing, according to Charles Davidson at North Down Grain.


“The weather has been kind, and the crops are good, with plenty of straw.

“Generally, it’s very pleasing, and the better prices have given everyone a bit of a lift as well.”

Many farmers were just starting on spring barley, but wheat was still about two weeks away from ripening, he added.
