Blankney Farm Update – 28 June 2024

The harvest season has started at Blankney with our winter forage, winter barley, and winter rye already complete.

Yields are approximately 11% down, a reduction which, considering the season we have had, is understandable.

Our vining pea harvest is now ongoing and again, due to the weather, we’re currently seeing mixed results.

With the recent warmer and sunnier period, we hope this will help our main cereal yields of wheat and barley.

Grass yields have been good – we’re now busy irrigating. It’s amazing how quickly soils can dry out in two weeks!
