John Ulyatt in Fosdyke, Lincolnshire, said he was suffering from no problems at all this harvest. “We’re going very well when the weather lets us.”
He was 60% through cutting Welford winter wheat, and 28ha had yielded 10t/ha. Bushel weights were good and there were no problems with the quality, he said. The crop was to be sold to a local mill.
He planned to grow the same next year, “the same variety and the same area”.
Mr Ulyatt added: “Things are going a little better so far than last year. We’ve one more field to go and so far I’m highly delighted with it.”
