Kent quality OK despite heat

“The crops came along quicker but the hot weather hasn’t affected the quality,” said Martin Boulden from Aldington, Kent.

The 280ha of Canberra oilseed rape was coming off at 3.75t/ha and “looked good with no problems”.

At 9% moisture the crop was “not too bad” and Mr Boulden was expecting “an average year” for the crop.
