Rainfall in Northern Europe has reversed and is again forecast in France, Poland and northern Germany, creating additional quality concerns and slowing harvest progress.
Farmers who sold grain through a range of Gleadell pools during the past 12 months have received significant premiums over open-market prices, topping out with an £18/t premium for feed wheat in the final quarter.
What is believed to be the UK’s biggest bagged seed store will come on stream this harvest at Dunns’ headquarters at Long Sutton, Lincolnshire.
Farmers belonging to Gleadell’s Weetabix Growers Club could soon be sending more high quality wheat to the Northamptonshire-based cereal manufacturer.
