2016 Dwarf Bean Drilling Start


Dwarf Bean drilling has started but it is a challenge. For the month of June we have had in excess of 120mm of rain with some growers having received 20% of their annual rainfall in just 10 days. One grower told me he got 42mm in one lump. Consequently we are way behind on the program and doing everything we can to try and make up for lost time but this will never happen. At the moment we are drilling behind the plough and some growers are even re-ploughing land just so we can get on. There will be an impact, how severe this will be we will have to wait and see.
