The article focuses on the yields from oats and other cereals at the Deer Park Farm in Cornwall, England managed by Martin Howlett. About 25 tons per hectare were yielded by winter barley, Italian ryegrass and red clover wholecrop. The wheat straw yields at £47 per ton. He cites that bringing an additional £28 per acre in contracting fees is beneficial for the local farmers' fields.
