    Grain yields 2022

    Thought it would be a good idea now that harvest 2022 is well underway to have a thread with grain yields/ variety of Barley/ Wheat etc all in one place. So how are your crops yielding for 2022?

    No combines out yet.

    Will winter barley be ready next week for this good spell of weather or is it still to early.

    Grown this variety of WW in the past and really liked it, but was told no longer available by Frontier a few years ago. I've now discovered its still out there being grown. So, anyone growing it in the DD situation and hows it compare with Skyfall on disease nowadays ? Thanks

    Record harvest?

    WB still looking three weeks away, so probably not starting here until 4th July, much later than in 1984. Crops here were set back by early drought, so yields not likely to match those of 2019. Nominal prices now at a record high but not yet approaching the £650/tonne in today's money...
