Mixed harvest in Herts

Harvest is nearly over for Charles Martin in Abbotts Langley, Hertfordshire, with eight hectares of winter wheat remaining from the total 80ha. Consort and Einstein yielded 7.5t/ha, with Einstein performing slightly better. Yields are up on last year.


Fourteen hectares of Winner oilseed rape yielded 3.1t/ha, and he was disappointed with the yield of his peas.


He is still unsure on about what price he’ll get, but fears it will be disappointing.
