John Nice - Doing nicely

Friday, June 22, 2018

East Anglian farmers are warning the situation for some of their crops was beginning to get “very serious” as a prolonged dry spell puts pressure on plants, particularly those on light, free-draining soil.

We also want to highlight those areas where improvement is still needed.
