The Rain In Ukraine Is Really Quite A Pain

Mike Lee, our Ukrainian correspondent, says that his first combines of OSR are ready to roll this weekend. That is if the kind of heavy downpours that are afflicting the region leave anything left to combine.

"I would expect the OSR (yields) to be down and it may go even lower as localised heavy showers knock seed out of brittle pods. Some people apply pod stickers but I reckon you would need super glue to keep pods intact after the sort of summer downpours we get," says Mike.
