    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

    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.

    Lollo Rosso

    The heat has finally caught up with the northern crops of Lollo Rosso.

    The heads are small and have really struggled this year. Looking across the UK all growers are in the same situation, we still have supply but be warned the head sizes are smaller than usual.

Potato Trouble

This time of year is critical for the most overused and often forgotten about crop we grow in the UK.

Potatoes are used on most things and over the years there is no doubt it has turned into a commodity crop that we all just expect to be available in good supply and quality at all times.

We have all been aware of the severe heat we have faced and the impending issue with crops that are still in the ground due to lack of water.

We will be doing an indepth piece on the potato forcast over the coming week but of late we have been receiving warnings from potato growers and processors across the land warning of a troublsome season ahead.

Early lifts of the crop are showing signs of lack of large graded potatoes which are used for bakers, chips etc along with reduced yields. Just take a look at the words flowing from Koffman’s!!!!

There isn't a shortage just now but please be warned as this coming 18/19 season could be extremely troublesome for our trusty tuber as the rest of the crop is lifted and inspected.

We will keep you updated.....
