About 60% of the crop area in the south has been cut, with the majority of winter barley already in the shed. Growers are now focusing on the spring barley and winter wheat.
In the North growers are a bit further behind but a spell of good weather has given the opportunity to go into the wheat with reports suggesting a mixed bag so far.
