It's Kicking Off In Moldova Now

I'm starting to feel a bit like Jeff Sterling here, as the scores start to filter through on a busy Saturday afternoon.

The winter harvesting campaign is expected to kick off in Moldova this weekend, before gradually moving north where harvesting is still a fortnight away.

The OSR harvest has already begun, with yields averaging 1.6 MT/ha (no idea if that's good my Moldovian standards, although obviously you wouldn't be rushing to the Range Rover dealership with that over here).

It shouldn't take too long to get the winter wheat harvest in, they've only planted 270,000 ha of the stuff, a third down on what was sown for 2009.

They'll be dancing on the streets of Chisinau over to Forest Green where there's been a sending off...
