The Winter Barley is slowly coming in to the store with a few better batches of Specific Weight but no trend on variety or areas to make sense of the varying quality that we are seeing. Hopefully we are about 70% through the crop.
The OSR harvest has barely begun, but early signs are not good on either yields or oil contents. Some of the early samples have had alot of cleavers in, which the cleaners struggle to take out completely.
Could be a record year for claims on specific weights, wheat ad-mix in barley and cleavers in OSR – but early days yet!!
