Weather update

The weather is currently mild with plenty of showers and the forecast is more of the same for the rest of the week.

Plenty of moisture about for spring sown crops to get up and away and if you could find a land drain outlet I suspect that some fields would be at field capacity. Plenty of moisture at this stage often means the roots won’t go searching for it and don’t go down as deep which can have consequences later in the season.

Oh, and I’ve seen some hail damage on winter wheat. It’s bloody tough is farming!
