Blankney Farm Update – 11 December 2023

The November and early December weather continues to be wet with only our light soils being in a suitable condition to do any land work, you wonder what we are going to do with the heavy land in the spring!

Sugar Beet harvest continues to go well, with yields now 7% above our 5-year average. Lifting progress has gone well with over 50% of the crop now lifted.

Maize combining started with 64% of the crop now in store and dry. We just need a dry week to get the remaining area cut. Wheat drilling will complete this week and we will then start on Spring Barley.
