Settled weather in the last week has ensured harvest completion for northern regions with areas outstanding. Scotland experienced more unsettled weather as their harvest continued into September slowing progress for areas in the south of the region.

Progress recovered towards the end of the week where showers gave way to dryer weather and are now close to seeing a completion to cereal and oilseed rape harvest.

Harvest progress to WE24 September can be summarised as:

  • Wheat – 100% complete. GB national average yield estimated at 8.8-9.0t/ha.
  • Winter barley –100% complete. GB national average yield estimated at 7.4-7.6t/ha.
