The author discusses the results of harvests in his land for 2013. He claims that the wet spell in late August 2013 allowed farmers to attend a wedding without feeling any guilt. He notes that the winter wheat average on his land exceeded 10 tons per hectare, with good quality and yields varying across the farms and soil types. He describes the good result of modified drill on oilseed rape and as well applying di-ammonium phosphate fertiliser in a band near the seeds.
