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.

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.

The results of this survey will allow the industry to quantify domestic production, at a time when food security is more important than ever.
The information can be used to shape the domestic market and trade and assist levy payers in their marketing decisions. It will detail regional differences of cropping across the UK, which will help...
