Philip Darke from Camgrain in East Anglia said 7000 tonnes of grain was delivered yesterday to his store, and was expecting a further 13000t to be cut, also yesterday.
Early first wheats he said were coming in with good quality, with bushel weights averaging 76kg/hl. The oilseed rape yields were also good, and the spring barley was reasonable although with higher than average nitrogen levels.
All the winter barley had been cut in the area, and he said it was the best it had been in a while.
Despite another wet day today, he said harvest was still ahead of last year. But he hopes the weather will hold so there will be no Hagberg problems like last year. At the moment he reports the Hagberg and bushel weights to be where they should.
