British harvest battered by wind and rain
NorthWels, October 7, 2004
The keenly awaited National Farmers' Union's harvest estimate for the United Kingdom now puts the headline wheat yield at 15.8m tonnes and barley at 6m tonnes.

Both figures are higher than last year but regional output was affected in those areas where the weather was at its worst.

Having lost most of August, the key month for harvesting, farmers pulled out all the stops to bring in the harvest during a small window of opportunity provided by the weather in the first week in September.

The NFU estimates the average wheat yield in Wales at 8.07 tonnes per hectare, compared with 7.9 tonnes in England and 8.64 tonnes in Scotland.

But Britain's farmers have fared much worse than those in Europe who enjoyed much better harvesting conditions and report exceptionally good quality.

The NFU claims that this will produce major challenges for the UK as it competes for export markets, both within Europe and further afield.
