Harvest update

Soya harvest is continuing slowly with yields disappointing but probably realistic as the shallow rooted crop suffered in the summer heat and drought.

Plants are low growing this year, combines are struggling to cut low enough without picking up soil and are leaving pods behind. Not much can be done although everyone reckons flexi headers will help. Can't see it myself, bit of a gimmick I reckon, anyone used them before? We have one on contract so we will see how it goes.
