    Been in Relay the last couple of days on second wheat and it looks promising. No figures but judging from how far the combine travels along the field to the tank full. Will update on bushel weight when it's tested.

    Re: 2nd wheat

    I've just finished a field of 2nd wheat Relay which was very thin in places and has looked awful all year. I was amazed when I totalled the weights and found it did 3.5 tonnes/acre. That's 8.64 tonnes/ha to you younger people. I just don't believe it!
