ABSTRACT
The article deals with the condition of the farm being managed by the author in Budapest, Hungary. Though he is leaving the country to visit Great Britain for a couple of weeks, the author happy to be leaving the farm at a time of the year when the crops look so well. Wheat is mostly out in ear and looks promising for maybe 7-7.5 ton/hectare yields, maize is, on average, at 4-8 leaves and looking very healthy. The sprayer is busy with post-emergence weed control in the maize.
