Herts OSR looks good

The oilseed rape harvest looked “pretty good” for James Coumbe on Sentry Farms, Hertfordshire.

Astrid and Escort oilseed rape yielded around 3t/ha and came in at 7-9% moisture.

“It’s a nice clean sample so we can’t complain,” said Mr Coumbe.

He added that conditions had been mixed, so the crop was “a bit laid in places”.

The lighter land had been affected by the hot weather, but he said: “The heat helped to ripen the crops.”
