Crop & Harvest | Update
The final lifting of the crop has just about taken place, and Improved lifting progress was made this week, following beneficial weather conditions at the start of this week.
Reduced yields and secondary growth continued to be reported from unirrigated fields, although the quality was often found to be better than feared.
With the majority of the crop lifted product is now being stored and in some cases held back which is causing some concern around availability with older varieties.
