An improved weather forecast for the coming days may see winter barley harvest get into full swing for the rest of this week and beyond. Very little has been cut to date, due to a combination of weather and delayed ripening, but it is likely that there will be a lot of crops taken out in the days ahead if weather permits. However, there will still be a big proportion of crops not yet ready for harvest.

Early indications from the 2015 harvest remain relatively scant. Growers want yields to be good to help pay bills, but only time will tell if this will happen.
