Rain stopping progress

“WEVE oilseed rape and barley ready to combine, but weve been stopped by the rain,” says Emma Farley, manager of Holton Power Farms.

Just 8ha (20 acres) of Madrigal oilseed rape have been cut. “After 15 minutes of combining today at 14% moisture it started pouring down.”

There is also spring barley and wheat on the farm, with soils ranging from sand to heavy clay.

“Were behind at the moment, but isnt everyone?” she says farmers around have only been able do little bits of harvest.
