Harvest date prediction?


Mixed Farmer
3 or 4 weeks?



Think our barley will be later than usual, which is normally about 20th July. Got a neighbour that grows malting barley, still Maris Otter I think, who’s looks very yellow compared to ours.
Here in the middle of France combines would normally be rolling next week, but it's been a funny old season with just 21mm of rain in April, then a cold wet May [69mm]. The first week of June saw 20 mm followed by a week of scorching heat. Finally thunderstorms and 67 mm in the last 7 days, so there is now quite a bit of flat wheat and I don't see much chance of anything until the end of the month. As my old Dorset neighbour once remarked, "I ain't never knowed a time like it."
What have people had rain wise. We have had very little in the last 4 weeks, North Yorkshire, but still moisture underneath. I can see some sands burning up if it doesn’t come much rain in the next few weeks.
