So OK, what have you all been up to regarding crops in the ground this Autumn? Quite a lot been set around here by now. Some of it looks good, and some a bit patchy. There is still plenty going on, with wheat being set wholesale now that we have had some decent rain.

What has emerged recently looks pretty good. Oilseed Rape looks either really good or terrible. No middle way.

What sugar beet has been lifted looks on the small side so far. Don't know what the sugar content is like this year. It ought to be good, what with all the sun, but it doesn't always work like that.

Tell all, you 'ol Ffukers....................... :roll:

Done with corn, just started on beans.

Never in my career has that happened.

Went on one of my trawls around South Cambridgeshire yesterday. Hellif there ain't a lot of activity in the fields! Wheat being drilled like there's no tomorrow, sugar beet being lifted, immediately followed by the plough and then the drill............and those seedbeds do look good. With this weather continuing, I expect a lot more of the same this week.
