Fortis yields well in Norfolk

Things were not too bad for Ian Gaunt in King’s Lynn, Norfolk.

Forty-six hectares of Fortis oilseed rape yielded 3.9t/ha, which was 0.5t/ha greater than last year.

Mr Gaunt suggested the 8-10% moisture was due to 96mm rain since June.

Although the heat had brought the harvest on, Mr Gaunt said it “looked a decent sample”.
