Harvest almost finished in the UK

Andy Mahon, who is a farm manager in North Bedfordshire in the UK joined this week's episode of The Tillage Edge Podcast to give an update on the harvest. Andy who is originally from Dublin, is almost finished the harvest already.

Andy said this has been the earliest, and easiest harvest he has ever been involved in. Crops developed earlier than normal through the spring and the lack of water has not helped yields.

Andy said yields are 10% lower than the farm long term averages but the quality is excellent and he is hoping wheat crops will achieve milling specification. Andy is concerned about the high risks of production for next year but has purchased all the fertilisers already so he will continue growing wheat.
