Combines move into stubble turnip seed

While the main harvest is still a month away, some crops have already been cut.

Nicholas Watts at Vine House Farm, Deeping St Nicholas, Spalding, says he combined his crop of organic stubble turnip seed on Monday.

It’s one of only two organic stubble turnip crops grown in the UK this year and yielded about 1.2t/ha (10 cwt/acre). The seed will be sold to other organic farmers to provide livestock feed next winter.
