English Wheat Crop 12.9 MMT - NFU

The NFU say that this year's English wheat crop will only muster around 12.9 MMT on a combination of the very wet autumn planting conditions, a dry spring and persistent rains throughout July, August and September.

Without giving a specific figure, yields will be below the five year average of 7.8 MT/ha., they say.

"Second wheat was affected most by the poor growing conditions but first wheat yields were better then anticipated and have partly compensated. Quality is reported as good, particularly in first wheats with reasonable protein levels and good specification achieved by wheat growers across the country," they say.
