According to a recent Crop Level Report by the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB), the weather in the UK in the fall of 2021 was significantly lower than in previous years. This enabled the farmers to focus better on the planned winter grain cultivation. Sowing and cultivation of crops is progressing well so that the grain reserve will grow well by the end of November.
At the end of November, winter wheat harvest was at 84 per cent, up from just 54 per cent in the previous year. Only 4 percent of the harvest went from bad to very bad. Winter wheat sowing is almost complete by the end of November. As for winter barley, 90 per cent of the stocks were in good condition from very good and only 2 per cent were in poor to very bad condition. In November 2020, only 58 percent of the harvest was in good condition. Sowing is completed on time, mostly in September and October. As for winter oats, 79 per cent of the crops were in good condition, up from 68 per cent in the same period last year. Sowing was almost complete, conditions were better and emergence was better. AMI
