Crops look dry in Cambs

Cambridgeshire farmer Peter Mead was reasonably pleased with 12ha of Carat winter barley which cut at 8.6t/ha. He said this was better than he had seen for a few years and is above his average.

He was also pleased with the bushel weight of 72.8kg/hl.

Mr Mead had 20ha more winter barley to cut once the sun had dried it out after rain yesterday (10 July).

The rest of his crops were looking dry, he said, “It’s too late for rain now, we could have done with it earlier”.
