2016 Rye Harvest Started


Rye harvested started on the 3rd July with DH Barnes doing the foraging with his new CLAAS 960, 5.2m disc drive header. Crops in general good considering the growing season we have had, but normally we would have expected to have seen more tillering in a 'normal' year. This aside, the groups adjusted yield is hovering around 32t/ha when adjusted to 37%DM with the avg DM at harvest being about 34%, so not a disaster. Harvesting about 25ha a day so we should be done by the 11th July if we have a good wind behind us.
