    Update on our little zero fung trial. Early results are, it has been a resounding success! It was the bird seed market we were targeting, and if we delete the weed control and fert records we will have organic status too.

    ps. I will be posting a link to an online petition to have the KPH threshold for wheat in Europe lowered from 72 to 45. I would appreciate it if you could sign it for me.

    Grainfill looking promising in the wheat this evening.

    Despite being on the south coast, it’s 2-3 weeks from harvest.

    Some good quality Wheat came into Quinns. I did not hear what the tonnage was like. Some of ours might be fit next week.

    Costello. Few bits lodging which I hope means it's a fairly good crop. I'd say 3 weeks at least until it's ripe.
