Scottish farmer Alec Webster has finished 28ha of Regina spring barley, with average results. “There was nothing spectacular and nothing really bad.”
Yields were around 7.5t/ha and bushel weights 65kg/hl. He said Regina had been “much better” in the past, but yields were a lot better than 3.2ha of Scylla which was “terrible”.
The crop suffered from a touch of mildew, although he said this was not too bad. He noted the combine was black when he finished when it is usually cleaner.
Mr Webster added: “We’ll just have to see if we can do better next year.”
