Harvest/Yields 2020

Have cut 200 acres of rape so far. Best of it 3.6t/ha. Worst 2.3 t/ha.Might scrape a 3ton average. Down to 4.5% moisture by the end of the day too :-(

did a 17 acre field of winter barley yesterday. i think i could just about fill a 29 ton lorry . It was so short in places that i was using the reel to sweep it onto the bed. Hopefully that's the worst field.
that’s not good silver fox, the pictures of your crops you post on here make me feel sick with envy so god knows what others will be like?

Similar here. Running at about 3t average. But very low spend and low fixed cost direct drilling structure. Leaves a nice margin even at the low yield

Just finished our osr. I guess it yielded .8 ton/acre if we are lucky. Grew it on some sharp land and it just died off. Looking at my spring barley i would agree with some of the comments saying it looks good from a distance but in field there are not enough ears.

Not even "slightly disappointed"? :ROFLMAO:
:giggle: :giggle:

He shouldn't be, really - that's about double ours.

Fact is, I'm more than "slightly disappointed" here that my dire WB yield predictions should have turned out to be spot on - was actually hoping for something slightly better.

The words "shoot", "foot", and "oneself" now in the mind, in no particular order.
