Mine started ok and despite warm days the spring barley is really not enjoying life Trying to convince myself its building roots but it looks like its going backwards as its so cold at night.
I've some spring wheat that's not going to make it through the concrete the surface has become.Really tough spring here. Very wet before drilling in the last week of April. Then we got 75ml of rain as we finished drilling and flooded some fields. Then turned hot, 28 degrees and baked the surface. Then 17 ml of rain in 2 hours on Saturday. Will be glad when we get to harvest. Spring barley is the big loser. Drilled last as on wet clay then 3 inches of rain soon after drilling knackered some. Beans, oats, linseed look fine but taking ages to get away. Winter crops look OK. Hoping for a kind June/July.
