The first Black Sea crop tour of 2017 is in the bag

We have safely and successfully completed our first Black Sea crop tour of the 2017 season.

Last week we travelled 3,000km from Moscow in Russia to Odessa in Ukraine, assessing the post-winter condition and yield potential of the current wheat crop.

I am now back in the office processing the results and writing up the reports which will include yield forecasts, crop condition assessment, comments and opinion.

We will email the reports out to subscribers later this week plus we hope to have some short videos made up so you can see what the crop looks like for yourself.

During the tour, we posted 64 pictures and six short videos on a Twitter account that is open to subscribers, we will post more videos there this week as we edit the large amount of footage we took.

The blog will be running a reduced service this week as we concentrate on writing up the results.

If you would like to subscribe to access the result from this tour and the rest of the tours planned through the 2017 season then email me at blackseacroptour@gmail and I will forward details.

Thanks to all who supported this tour and to those that assisted in making it happen.
