After 39 weeks, From the Tramlines comes to an end for another year. Twenty-twenty has been a year like no other. While the COVID-19 pandemic altered virtually every aspect of our lives, one thing remained unchanged, food still had to be produced.
It was a challenging year for crop production as growers had to contend with several weather extremes, from drought, to floods, to freak frosts and storms. Many growers saw reduced yields and quality as a result. Some areas did fare better than others, however. All growers welcomed the turnaround in grain prices during the autumn and this will hopefully set up 2021 to be a better year.
