Crops looked ok and so far yields had been at around 28 cwt/acre (3.5t/ha), he said.
Mr Juhl said the farm was on medium, chalky-boulder clay land which may have helped keep crops standing.
“We’ve had a lot of rain and the forecast doesn’t look very good too say the least either. When the sun shines we’ll harvest.”
