Across the board probably down 20% on average, Spring Beans probably worse than that, 2nd wheat and w barley perhaps not quite that bad. Some 1st wheats on some stoney light land were shocking!
Spring beans here last year were bad 50% of normal , but wheat all firsts were excellent at 11T/H
A heavy thunderstorm on June 1, must have given just enough moisture for the wheat to hang on, no real rain till harvest . Dry summers suit us in soggy Shropshire.

We had literally nothing from the beginning of May onward for 3.5 months till the middle of August! The miniscule amounts that did fall occasionally just frazzled up with the 25 plus degree heat we had for quite a while! As you say those lucky enough to catch a heavy storm had just enough for winter crops to give good yields with that little extra rain that we never had.

Loaded an item of machinery last week for a couple of chaps from by Corby, who had had 30mm of rain, to our 13mm, they said how dry we looked. Which is quite saying something; coming from a man from Corby.

How many times do you sell & buy back your harvest? PM me if you’d prefer.
I just trade CFDs.

My spring barleys on a £20/over Nov wheat futures contract for malting low N. 50% wheat futures based:50% spot.

Did some at £176, last year which will be £196 at harvest if it meets spec. Only 5 loads unfortunately.

Written by William Kellett from Agriland

court-640x360.jpg
A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.

Discussion with Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) officers confirmed the site...
