What a year it would be to win it – late sown, hot, dry growing season but chalk soils have produced some really nice samples.
Firstly, we wish you all the very best for the year ahead, although hard to believe we are nearly through January. 2020 was certainly a testing year and 2021 has set off on the same foot, things can only improve as we start to emerge from the winter months, the evenings are already stretching out and crops appear to be moving although not enjoying current wet conditions.
There appears to be a chance that the rain is relenting and the second half of March might actually become dry and settled. It will hopefully allow you to make a start with what will be a huge spring workload.
This years Malting Barley Trials evening will be on the 27th June 2022
