Gerald Godfrey from Great Common Farm, Suffolk, said 52ha of winter wheat did well this year considering the drilling conditions last autumn.
The best crops did very well at 10t/ha, with most averaging 8.75t/h. He said these results were not excessive but was pleased, with Claire yielding particularly well.
Quality was very good, and he said it was a lot better than last year when most crops were green and laid.
Mr Godfrey plans to grow as many first wheats as possible next year.
