Twenty percent of 172ha of winter wheat remains to be cut for FARMERS WEEKLY Farmer Focus writer John Jeffrey in Roxburghshire in the Scottish Borders.
Yields were good, averaging 8.75t/ha, with the majority of the crop coming in dry at 16 – 18%.
He said Malacca did well, Claire was good, Robigus was ok but Consort was disappointing. “It just didn’t do as well. It’s a later variety.”
Mr Jeffrey said on the whole harvest has been good this year, with yields slightly up on last year, except for oilseed rape which was “awful”.
