2022, the harvest we may never see again!
33 days combining saw this years harvest gathered up with the help of perfect conditions. Record temperatures caused some concern around machinery and low moistures in the oilseed rape after no rainfall, however this led to some high bushel weights and great yields across the board. Not only this, but the dryer was only required twice.
The last day of harvest found us joining the unfortunate list of those experiencing field fires. A spark from a combine chopper started a fire that engulfed around 25 acres of crop. Quick thinking from the arable team and help from the Fire Service prevented the spread towards local houses.
