The author presents an update on his farm of medium stony loam in County Down, Northern Ireland. According to him, the early June weather gave them a good start but very little has been produced in 2007. Despite the unsettled conditions, all their wheat has had a T3 spray and the potatoes had four blight treatments. He suspects lower levels in winter barley due to lack of sunshine.
