Crop harvesting order

Post by Oxgirl36 »

We have all been bemoaning the dry pasture but have taken heart that the grass cutting season has begun in earnest. I noticed on Facebook yesterday that Julian from Treasure Hunting magazine (thankfully on the road to recovery following his recent heart attack) has listed the order of harvesting of crops in a typical cereal farm permission. So here it is for those that don’t know it is...
(Updated - thanks Drustan)

Winter barley
Oilseed rape (OSR)
Spring barley
Winter wheat

If you are looking for additional permissions it’s good to get a few grass fields on your list. I’ve only ever had one hay field, until this year, and it was heavy clay soil so impossible to dig in the summer. This year I have over 100 acres of hay fields to swing my coil :D . It is saving my sanity right now.

So I thought a list of typical crop harvesting months and the order of harvesting might be a useful in the permissions section.I’ll find a way to present the data in some semblance of order later ::g

I fully recognise the weather has a big bearing on exactly when things are harvested but this is a rough guide that should be useful.

So no idea about other crops except that main crop potatoes are harvested late September to (mainly) October. Maize is October too.
