So some very impressive yields and prices being bandied about on the Combinable price tracker thread.
Is it premature to say it would appear 21/22 is set to be a brilliant year for UK cereal growers - asking for a friend...

Am sure as many have done well as have had a pants year, one things for sure the fert price will rocket some more along with all other input prices. Just a merry go round and you keep adding 0's to the figures.
I think it's area/soil specific but on our tat what I've cut so far has been good to average, always the one or two fields that let the average down, certainly a legacy from the wet spell we had but am looking forward to cutting my Spring wheat which is on some decent (for us) dirt and has looked well all year.

Unsure.

Given I planted *zero* wheat for last harvest, this year was going to be better. And it's done very well. And prices good.

On the flip side, there are reports of BG infested crops, or waterlogged crops doing sub 3t, and plenty saying bushels low.

For me, it's been very good. But then I only have a little bit now.

its not in the shed yet though, we are about 40% cut and have dried the last 10-15%

On our little patch 2021 yields and prices are still short of where they would need to be to make up for the financial losses of last year and additional costs to feed and bed the cattle over last winter.
Better than nothing though.
Selling another 18 acres off this week.
