Wheat into orbit


north yorks
Its going to have to have to go 10 times that much to cover next years Fertiliser costs, and still be no better off!
it could well do
just looking and talking around whilst harvest has been generally good ,its not been a record breaker . The amount of total harvested wheat is not above home use.
the amount of barley sown seems to be higher and as for osr the country will be yellow come spring and almost every crop ive seen looks tremendous atm thus the acerage of wheat may not be as big as some are predicting
The cost of transport and shipping has never been higher and is making it un economic to import
The rest of the world appear to have lower stocks and an increasing demand
the increase in growing costs could well have a negative effect on production
but then im an optimist a trait that one day will bear fruit
