Weather starting to worry

KENT farmer Jonathon Tipples has not had much progress in the last week due to poor weather. But he says if the weather is good this week – as forecasted – he could finish by the weekend.

He has Claire winter wheat to combine. “If we get it off this week it should be OK. It doesnt need another couple of weeks rain.”

He says the crop fell over on Sunday morning after weekend rain. He is also worried about sprouting in the ears.
