Things are “looking promising” for Stephen Ellerbeck on Highfield Farm in Cambridge.
The Canberra oilseed rape cut at 3.75t/ha and 8% moisture. “It doesn’t look too bad,” he said.
The weather had been variable with “scorching hot days and some rain”.
He was “fairly hopeful” for the wheat, with all varieties “looking promising”. His best yield last year was from 68ha of Einstein at 10.75t/ha which “we hope for again this year”.
