    Looking on the bright side , it would have been a whole lot worse if you had sold it for 124 a tonne and your brother had told us all about it.

    This is the year to quote bushel weight instead of hectolitre weight, to convert x hectolitre weight by 1.25

    mmmm-bushel weight is not the correct term-although a lot of us use it.I was on autopilot and repeating what the op said.Specific weight is probably a better description.One way to increase specific weight would be to cool the grain.Another way could be to take it to a planet with a bit more gravity!!

    Thats interesting, how does cooling increase spec wt?

    I like the gravity idea, however will it also cure a DON test result of 1500?

    Speaking to a consultant recently, he told me he has a client who will be loading some wheat this september at 108.

    Not his advice btw, but partly why he is now employed by them.

    well first i read about it in the farmers guardian-then i googled it and saw that indeed the specific weight of water increases as it cools-so i guess the same would apply to wheat.Just need to figure a way out of refrigerating my store!

    Water is different to grain as its a liquid
    I'm sure that I remember this from at school.

    but when it freezes it expands lowering its specific weight alarmingly.

    Got me thinking there. Maybe that is why these Essex lads are getting better specific weights. No, not suggesting that Essex is a different planet (or...) but our higher altitude oop North will lesson ours

    One little trick we have in Essex to raise kg/w is to add small pieces of gold to the sample.

    Its always worked for me, the millers are so dim they've yet to notice.

    They don't seem to mind bits of gold. It's lead they have a problem with.

    That reminds me of a farmer round here who used to deliver his own potatoes to Golden Wonder and quite often managed to get a few stones in the basket when they measured the specific gravity.

    A few ounces of lead usually does the trick!

    I think i need to reduce that figure by 12.3 % to match last years 81 kg wheat.
    So that gives a yeild of 3 tpa.
    33% less than 2011.

    Should i represent mr ave, the Uk wheat yeild would be in the 10.5 to 11 million ton range.
    Having nearly finished now i am going to have to ajust my estimate DOWN to 40% less than 2011 having found 2.25 tpa on ex Potato land.
    To add salt Hags are low as well and will be sold on a min 130 hag. With claims on kg/hl and screening's. Expect Net of stops pre to come to 5 ton.
