At last, after almost a month since sowing, the tips of green winter wheat shoots are clearly visible. I was afraid they had rotted in the incessant rain but while the tramlines are not yet visible, the plants look healthy with a reasonable plant population though the later the season went, the more we increased the seeding rate.

The seed wheat itself went in after beans and there are no pools of water in the field unlike where the winter barley went in after wheat.
