    Never mind what you've cut......

    Spreading lime on barley stubbles in Norfolk yesterday and they were drilling rape behind us. The 2nd August, that is too early surely??

    We are finding the latter the crop the better it is - so those of you with nothing cut yet might just be the lucky ones

    never thought I would say it but i'm happy and feel lucky with 1.3 lowest to 1.5 highest so far ! hopefully with better to come - we store a lot of OSR and have heard some terrible tales of woe already !!

    10% cut here at Market Rasen, 10 days after swathing. Just trying the combine really. Started at 2pm at 13%. It had got down to 11% by 3.30 pm then the rain started so called it a day with about 7.5 tonnes off 5 acres. Yielding reasonably well but too early to get a figure as wet holes that died off early and outside rounds.
    Going to wait till the mid next week when there is supposed to be a dry spell. Swaths not getting too low .... yet.

    Just finished, was not sure to cut or not this afternoon with moisture between 10 - 11.5%, however it was regloned about 10 days ago and forcast for heavy showers and chance of hail swung it for me. I know I will have to take a hit on it but its in the shed now and I was getting fed up with checking moisture, getting combine out, then heavy shower being a daily accurance!

    Canola (spring gm rape) swath in 4 to 10 days. Burnt to crisp, yields down.
    Winter wheat, fall rye and barley in the bins, all above our average yields, but need it to make up for the canola.
    Oats swath in 2 days probably below average.
    Hard red spring combine in 4 days, looks good but...
    First rain in a month, been tooooo hot and toooo dry.
    Sunflowers and corn wilting. Beans need this rain, just come at the right time.
    On the US border of Manitoba and cookin in this heat..

    80 acres of Cabarnet still to go, 150 of all others in shed.
    9.5-12.5 %
    One oil test so far of 44.5.
    All had podstik, only a third had glyphosate....(combine wishes i had done it all, and might well be right)
    Very wet green sappy stems with nice black seed.

    On the drive home this evening, a few are moving for the first time this season, despite half an inch in 15 minutes yesterday evening. Or maybe because of it.

    Re: What% of rape have you cut

    We're on now. I've decided to go all night. It is 11% and we will have cut 160 acres by the morning (since 2pm today). That'll put us at 30% cut. Rain forecast for morning but I'll be in the trucker's cafe with the lads by then.

    Yields? They're bang on the 5 year average. 1.45 tpa. Nothing exciting.

    Wheat's pushing along and will have to wait until Openfield's lorries to clear the rape before we start on that. So should start wheat in November..... :-D
