Combinables Price Tracker

An Economists talking on TV saying that global wheat stocks are so high that even with the Ukrainian situation there's every possibility for wheat prices to fall , I'm going to class him as an expert so must be talking rubbish, certainly hope so 🤞

I could. Id be thinking about the increased yield for next year, and not looking at hare coursers leaving greasy wheelings all over filling with water.
I was just thinking, you are aiming for about a tonne to the acre more than me. Saying that I have had 4 of my most consistent yield years ever, no great records but hitting above my target year on year. Hopefully this year will be the same.

1st Feb to end of March 24mm
1st April to today 44mm

And it was dry enough over winter to have the spring barley in a month early. Add to that the heat etc.
