UK wheat harvest starts slowly, farmers eye rains
Some farmers said they might start cutting wheat a couple of days later than usual after recent rains and because they were busy harvesting barley or rapeseed crops, which have also been delayed by the wet weather. Around three-quarters of the UK's winter barley crop and about a third of its rapeseed have been harvested, they said. John Garstang, crop analyst with consultancy ADAS, estimated that well under 10 per cent of Britain's wheat crop has been cut so far. "There is still no great need to worry about delays in wheat," he told Reuters. "Nor is there any indication yields or quality will be adversely affected." Garstang forecast UK wheat yields of around eight tonnes per hectare, slightly up from 7.8 tonnes last year. Paul Temple, who farms 380 hectares in northern England, said he did not expect to start harvesting wheat for 10 to 14 days, adding that occasional showers and a lack of sunshine had probably delayed the start of wheat cutting in his area by a couple of days. Duncan West, with 1800 hectares in eastern England, expected to begin wheat harvesting a couple of days late, possibly next weekend if the present fair weather held.

Jonathan Tipples, who farms 250 hectares of wheat and rape in Kent, southeast England, said he had delayed the start of wheat harvesting by four days because of rains, but hoped to enter the fields later on Tuesday if the weather cleared. He said the dry winter in southern England had damaged wheat yields and quality. Rad Thomas, who farms 400 hectares of arable crops near Loughborough in Leicestershire in the English midlands, said he had finished barley harvesting, but poor drilling conditions last autumn had led to disappointing yields. He expected to start wheat harvesting in about a week if weather conditions were favourable. Farmers have to decide whether to leave crops in the fields so that they can dry out after the recent rains, and risk the possibility yields could fall if it continues to rain. "With the big rise of energy costs, the cost of drying has gone up quite markedly," Garstang said.
