Pearl winter barley yields looked better than last year for Graham Bunn in Norfolk.
At 8.2t/ha, the yield was probably 10% up on last year although he said it was still early days.
With nitrogen at 1.66% and 2.5% screenings, Mr Bunn was very pleased.
The wheats were also looking good and he was quietly confident.
He added: “The rain came at the right time and possibly saved the spring barley. This weather is exceptionally good for harvest.”
