weather looks poor in this part of the country until mid sept
This is supposed to be the dry week for us. Cut 20ac of wheat then spots of rain. Not to worry - weather forecast said maybe a spot or two then nice week until Sat night. Currently sat inside looking at double rainbows as the heavens opened.
so alot of people are going to be in trouble
Yes. A lot. I enquired about cancelling autumn cereal seed today. Will do the same re nitrogen fertiliser tomorrow. Spring cropping a waste of time here, so if I manage to get any oats in the shed I will spread some on the stubbles and use as a green manure. I'm not spending all winter looking at poor crops and blackgrass, and letting stood water off saturated fields.
