Black Earth Farming

Didn’t I just say farming is tough? BEF who farm across the border in Russia apparantly have only 800ha out of 8,500ha of oilseed rape make it through the winter and cold spring. Blimey, I thought our 15% winterkill was a tad high; you’ve got to feel for the guys.

Not that it was asked for but my advice would be to look after what you have, get it through to harvest by spending a bit more, which I know is difficult to stomach when you have lost so much already, but I reckon come harvest what you have will be worth a few quid. And ignore what the shares are doing, it will only depress you, take your eye off target and they don't matter anyway.
Good luck.
