The article reveals that Stephen Whitby of Rowley Farm, Wexham in Berkshire, England, was one of the first growers in Great Britain to be cutting wheat. About 30 hectares (75 acres) of Soissons had been cut by July 28, 2008 before rain stopped play. Output was maybe 5-10% above average for the land. However, higher yields may have decreased protein levels.
