Trading is well under way in the marketing challenge with quite a few entrants taking advantage of the opening bid prices.

As can be seen below, there is no respite in the downward pressure on the post-harvest market despite the uncertainty created by the recent wet weather and extensive lodging. When combines roll on the challenge farm, entrants will get firm evidence on the quality of their notional harvest. The competition is sponsored by Lloyds Bank and Banks Agriculture, and supported by Crops, the HGCA and the Chamberlain Partnership.

The latest bid prices (£/t) are:

Riband Rialto Rapeseed
