Wheat is ready to cut at Martin Spence’s Wolvey Holes Farm, Ealing, Cambs, but wet weather and a lack of drying facilities is holding harvest back.
“I haven’t cut anything. I’m waiting for a dry spell and for the contractor to turn up,” he said.
Mr Spence had 32ha (80 acres) of Einstein winter wheat to cut – all of which was still standing so far.
He also had 5.7ha (14 acres) of spring barley and 8ha (20 acres) of winter beans to do.
