Tayview September 14th 2012 North Fife

Tayview September 14th, cloudy and windy day drying the grain fields and then the sun came out fully.
The same field earlier this year.
Combine coming up to the turn at Ballinbreich Farm, North Fife.
Shredding the straw, rather than lay the straw for collection and future use as bedding etc. This way humus is restored back to the soil maintaining a more healthy balance on a bacterial micro-organism level.
Every couple of cuts the barley is off-loaded into trailers. My feeling is the yield is a good one in weight though the malting quality maybe marginal.
