It hardly seems like a year has passed since the last grain harvest and quality briefing. Last year we had very dry grain, thanks to warm dry weather after a summer of warm nights and accelerated plant development. In 2011, the weather just could not make up its mind – wet, moderate, hot but humid, moderate and dry, and then rain and storms. The net result is that average exists as a mathematical term but probably not on anyone’s farm.
