    Red Chicory

    The harvest of red chicory is extremely low and prices have tripled in price overnight as the Dutch Auction commands massive money for the privilege of using this easy option.

    Red chicory is not grown on mass so a slight issue with the crop can cause spikes and availability issues please be warned.

    Severe Heat

    You need to be aware that this radical heat spell is starting to cause damage to soft leaf and rapid growth summer crops but we are also concerned around late summer harvests such as carrots, potatoes, parsnips onions etc

    These will most definitely be affected by this crazy dry spell we are witnessing, we could still be talking about the damaging effects of this heat in November!!

    Dairy Trouble

    Just a peek at the grass instantly shows signs of grass death as the heat is scorching the land.

    It’s the first time in decades that cows are having to be fed winter silage at this time of year due to lack of growth.

    This will result in rising dairy prices which will affect butter and cheese in the near future.

    Potatoes **Future Damage**

    With the heat causing issues and immediate danger on softer summer crops we shouldn’t forget about crops desperately trying to grow.

    The outlook for this year's potato crops are looking bleak as early lifting is showing signs of a lack of larger potatoes which are graded out for baking potatoes and premium chip.

    If the rest of the UK crops once lifted are low in yield and do have smaller than average size differences the potato world for the next 12 months could be extremely troublesome. Watch this space!!!
