Baby, Baby, Where Did Our Wheat Go?

17/11/10 -- Customs data out last night reveals that the UK has exported 854,000 MT of wheat during the first three months of the 2010/11 marketing year after 386,000 MT left our shores during September.

That's almost double the 441,000 MT that was exported during the same period in 2009. It also means that we've already shipped two thirds of what Defra expect us to export for the entire marketing year in the first quarter alone.

It certainly looks like things are going to be pretty tight come the spring. We might not be able to feed the animals (what few remain), but at least we can drive around in our 4x4's content in the knowledge that in doing so we are saving the planet though.
