80% of wheat cut in the south

James Ross from Robin Appel Ltd, Hampshire, said 80% of wheat has been cut in the south, with a higher percentage of full grade milling wheat cut.

He said progress is on a par with last year despite this having potentially looked an early season. This could also be because it takes longer for very big contract lands to finish, he said.

He expects any rain to affect remaining crop, and has already seen some variable Hagbergs.

He added: “We can’t be over optimistic on seeing any good Hagbergs in the next batch of samples.”
