Sandy Alison had about two days combining left at Turnhouse Farm, near Edinburgh, where he was busy cutting Consort today (September 3).
“We’re less than a week behind – we’ve had a good run with the combine recently,” he said.
The Mendel oilseed rape managed to yield 3.9t/ha (1.6t/acre) despite a chronic club root problem with the land, said Mr Alison.
