The author contends that having to dry all the harvested wheat below 15 percent is absolutely stupid. All the feed wheat used or exported, at least before the New Year, is perfectly all right at 16 percent. In fact local miller sprays it with water if it is too dry, the author said. He says that British farmers should consider the oil imported into the country just to dry the wheat that last one percent.
