Harvest report 3

Published on

AHDB have now published the 3rd harvest report for week ending 20th August 2019.

Harvest report 3

Conditions over the WE20 August were challenging, with heavy downpours leaving grain too wet to harvest for much of the week. Farmers had to snatch brief windows of opportunity between showers, where crops had sufficient time to dry out. Rate of harvest progress over the last week has decreased due to challenging weather conditions, resulting in just 160Kha harvested, compared to 625Kha the previous week. To 20 August 1.7 million hectares had been harvested, equivalent to 47% of the GB cereal and oilseed area. The main focus of harvesting activities were wheat and winter oilseed rape (WOSR), although those farmers who still had winter barley left prioritised that. Small areas of spring barley and oats were also harvested.
