September 2018 News


This time last year we were reporting heavy rain, sticking soil, oversize potatoes and 40% through harvest. What a different tale this year! Extended drought conditions locally, dust everywhere, secondary growth and a shortage of bakers let alone oversize!  A lot of crops have only just been sprayed off or flailed as growers chase every ounce of yield.

It’s a late season and I would guesstimate that we only are 20% through harvest as a group. An extended wet spell now would make the job really interesting!
