One hundred hectares of Einstein yielded “reasonably well” for Robert Tullis in Lutterworth, Leicestershire, and he said there had been no disappointing results.
Most cut at 10t/ha, although he said the earlier sown crops yielded better than the later sown.
Quality has generally been good, with protein varying between 12.5 – 15.5%, Hagbergs 180 – 300 and bushel weight at 79kg/hl. He said results are similar to their long term average, despite the wet autumn meaning some crops did not have the best start.
Harvest finished a week to 10 days earlier than last year, and he said it had been a lot cheaper having saved money on drying costs.
