Frontrunner - 24th July 2020
Early UK wheat harvest results suggest huge variability in terms of yield and quality, with wide-ranging proteins grabbing the headlines thus far and testing generally lower than at this stage last year. The Hagberg falling numbers and specific weights reported also reflect a less-than-ideal growing season and, with a mixed short-term weather forecast, this may continue to be the case.
Elsewhere, FranceAgriMer estimates 57% of soft wheat to be in ‘good’ to ‘excellent’ condition. This is a 2% improvement on last week, bringing the harvest to 71% completion.
