The article reports that leaf analysis of in-conversion winter wheat has shown sulphur, copper and zinc deficiencies. The author believes that vast amounts of rain in summer 2007 caused the land to swill, washing soil particles into impervious deep layers. It mentions the news that the area of new land entering organic conversion in the east of England has slowed to almost nothing.
