It’s been an active few days. As the weather lifted, we hoped to finish off the oilseed rape. It seemed a good crop, but when we finished it off and got the figures, it had done a shade over 2t/ac at moistures from 9% to a little over 11%.

It was the first time we had beaten the 2t/ac barrier, so it more or less compensated - at least emotionally - for the slight disappointment with the winter barley.
